OCUFA’s Status of Women Committee is pleased to announce its latest Workshop, intended to build the leadership skills of academic women. The event will be held in Toronto on Friday, April 29, 2016.
Building on the success of last year’s workshop, Shari Graydon will again be facilitating a small, interactive workshop, this time focusing on the theme of “Increasing your Persuasiveness”.
The ability to convince other people – to approve your idea, follow your leadership, implement your plan – has an enormous impact on your success. This interactive workshop offers research-proven approaches, instructive case studies and hands-on practice in applying the tools to your own persuasive challenges.
Of interest to academic women in a wide range of fields, this workshop will equip participants with a range of skills – using a 5-minute strategic planning tool in advance of high stakes communications, identifying effective persuasion principles, and increasing impact by combining emotional and rational appeals.
Registration is $75 for tenured/tenure-stream faculty association members, and $25 for contract faculty association members. You can sign up online on the OCUFA Website. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Erica Rayment at 416-306-6032 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
