Arbinger Adventures at Kent Campus

My first trip to Kent Campus!

My first trip to Kent Campus!

What better reason to visit the Kent Campus, than to participate in an Arbinger Institute from our very own Mediation Center. Arbinger training is just one of the many professional development opportunities available through this great resource! I even downloaded the audiobook “Leadership & Self-Deception” to mentally prepare to be a part of this training.

I present Dr. Barry Bannister (our fearless leader).

Throughout the day (this is actually a multi-day workshop), I found myself taking notes as fast as I could write them down. I appreciated how Arbinger focuses on the way we interact with others and our role in helping those around us. It posed great self-reflective questions, such as:

  • How am I a problem for others?
  • How can I be more helpful to others?
  • How can I help things go right?
Being surrounded by other Green River employees made the event a blast.

The focus of the training is meant for workplace application and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their professional life. However, the training applies to all personal interactions and I found myself utilizing the principles covered with my own family members as well. I would definitely suggest this workshop (and others) provided through the Mediation Center. For complete details on all of their offerings, simply contact Dr. Barry Bannister or visit www.greenriver.edu/mediation.

Just one of the many reasons to visit Kent Campus!

In case you have never been to the Kent Campus, you’re missing out! There are many, many reasons (besides Barry and the Mediation Center) to drop by. I can’t wait until the next professional development workshop!
