This event is FREE for CUES Unlimited and Unlimited+ Members

Thursday, April 8, 2021
Presenter: Connie Miller, Regional President, Horizon Credit Union

Connie Miller will share how to utilize some great tools to be effective in your communication, and prevent drama from entering a situation or relationship. Also, learn how to get away from drama if it is occurring in your life today. We can innocently get pulled into a dangerous drama zone that causes stress or mental exhaustion, often when we are simply trying to help. Connie will provide you some tools to use in your everyday walk with your coworkers, clients, children, spouse, and other important relationships. You’ll leave with a solid quick resource to help the victims in your life switch their thinking and solve their own problems, while freeing yourself from the responsibility. You will learn the effect of unintended consequences when a well-meaning rescuer simply tries to help a victim that turns into enabling behaviors, and also the damage created when a victim is uncomfortable having crucial conversations. You will leave this workshop with practical hands-on tools to use to create a supportive environment of positive communication that will have a huge impact on gaining control in your life. It is possible to live a drama free life of positivity and gain respect as a supervisor, employee, and friend in the process. 

For virtual education support, review these helpful steps and frequently asked questions.
