SLA Career Connection Seminar: Make the Most of a Difficult Situation: Solutions to Get You Through

Every person experiences a difficult work situation at least once. A rough project, a harsh boss, an unfriendly work environment or even an unpleasant physical space can threaten productivity, working relationships, and the ability to succeed. We might ignore the situation, become combative, flee, or even feel that it is our fault. This session will cover tactics for surviving – and perhaps thriving in – a challenging situation. There will be time for questions so that participants can get advice about situations they have seen or encountered.

SLA Career Connection Seminar - The Art of Negotiation

No one wants to play “Let’s Make a Deal” when interacting with upper management. This session will enable you to identify who is "the boss of you,” develop your ability to reframe challenging situations into ones in which everyone gets what they want, and approach every situation as negotiable. Mary Ellen Bates, who used to be negotiation-averse, will present techniques that work in any professional situation.
