    Speaker: Sandra Crowe (bio)

    The new level of crazy in the world brings out feelings of collective unease and a host of baffling questions. This heightened level of stress can also bring out the “stress personalities” that go along with that unease, making others more difficult to deal with and ourselves less responsive and helpful than we’d like to be. This session is designed to support you in dealing with internal as well as external difficult behaviors whether it is coming from customers, colleagues, or even yourself and give you new options for more satisfying outcomes.

    Learning Outcomes:

    In this session, we will outline:

    *3 internal strategies and techniques you can use for helping you deal with yourself while dealing with difficult people

    *2 external strategies and techniques you can employ for your interactions with others

    *Specific language that’s helpful for de-escalating the tension

    *Ways to identify and let go of reactions that don’t serve you

    When: Wednesday, September 20, 2017 | 11:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

    Where:
    Capital Hilton

    Speaker: Stacy Barrow (bio)

    Keeping on top of the proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act has become a full-time job. While none of us has that kind of time or a crystal ball to see where this issue will end up under the current Congress and Administration, we do have the opportunity to hear from someone who makes the time to follow the positions, proposals and trends in health care. Stacy Barrow, Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Attorney, will share up-to-the-minute developments to assist as you consider budgets, address legal requirements and develop attractive benefits packages to recruit and retain staff.

    Attendees will:

    • Review current status of ACA enrollments and provisions
    • Review and consider recent actions by Congress and the President re the “Repeal and Replace” Affordable Care Act
    • Analyze the several proposals still under consideration by Members of Congress

    When: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 | 11:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

    Where:
    Capital Hilton
