Staff Development Day

Wednesday, June 6, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM

Help us REALIZE THE PROMISE of Saint Joseph’s College by coming together for the 2012 Staff Development Day.  It will be a day to reconnect, renew, revitalize and recommit with the rest of the SJC staff who contribute so much to the College.  The day will include programming on Professionalism, Team-Building and Customer Service.  We’ve also lined up two keynote speakers who will inspire you and bring it all together.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes and come ready to enjoy yourself.

Morning Keynote Speaker:  GREG BENNICK

Greg Bennick offers entertaining presentations in change management and inspiration, but from a very unique perspective. He will speak about teamwork, working together and respect, will focus on listening, and how truly listening to our friends and co-workers will lead to a deeper understanding of one another's needs and ultimately will strengthen the team. He will speak about how dealing with the unexpected and handling change most effectively is a function of understanding that change is inevitable, and that we are agents of change, and when we embrace it, we will come to be able to use it as a tool rather than see it as a weapon.

Afternoon Keynote Speaker:  DAVID LEE

Bring It On!

How to Face Change and Uncertainty with Greater Confidence and Adaptability

People who have a “Bring it on!” mind-set when facing change and uncertainty are not only far more effective during times of transition, they also have far more fun in the midst of change. Rather than feel stressed out or overwhelmed, they feel energized and invigorated.

Anybody can increase their comfort level—and decrease their stress level—by taking advantage of the simple, easy to use tools and practices discussed in this program. These practical, powerful ideas and techniques will help you:

  • Increase your ability to handle change with serenity and confidence
  • Reduce your overall stress level
  • Cultivate greater flexibility and adaptability so you’re able to “go with the flow” more easily
  • Increase your energy level…because the more resilient you are, the less energy you waste on “coping with stress”
