First ProfessionalEDGE Workshop Held at Mason’s Arlington Campus

We held our first in a planned series of experiential professional development workshops at George Mason University’s Arlington Campus in March 2013. We welcomed 24 participants to our half-day workshop entitled, “Powerful Communications: Dialogue When It Counts!”

The primary objective of the workshop was to learn approaches to holding constructive conversations when results are important and emotions are high. ProfessionalEDGE facilitator, Kate Trygstad, took participants through interactive activities designed to illustrate effective communication. She also provided opportunities for individual reflection and small group interaction.

Participants left the workshop equipped with knowledge of new models and techniques which they can apply to daily situations and use to communicate with confidence. Information packets contained materials that guided participants throughout the workshop and that will serve as excellent materials for future reference.

We look forward to continuing to offer professional development workshops at the Arlington Campus. The state of the art facilities combined with a thriving campus and surrounding business community offer a perfect setting for our ProfessionalEDGE workshops which challenge our clients to develop as individual professionals, grow as high functioning teams, and excel as innovative organizations.
