The likelihood that you are serving clients and working with team members that have non-apparent disabilities is fairly realistic. Researchers suggest that of those with disabilities about one-half (46%) have non-apparent disabilities compared to about 8% who have apparent disabilities.
This workshop will address the broad range of non-apparent disabilities including learning disorders, attention disorders, traumatic brain injuries, mental health disorders, and hidden physical/medical conditions. Based on a common set of characteristics and behaviors, participants will learn reasonable accommodations, modifications, strategies and techniques to address non-apparent disabilities whether or not a disability has been disclosed. Getting to a strength-based profile while understanding how to compensate for the limitations is the bottom line to fostering success for clients and co-workers.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to manage our relationships and ourselves effectively, especially when things are tense or we are in conflict. Current research shows that the more Emotionally Intelligent one is, the more likely they are to receive greater merit increases and hold higher positions within a company than their counterparts. They also receive higher peer and/or supervisor ratings of interpersonal skills and stress tolerance. The evidence is strong that there is a significant relationship between EQ and workplace performance.
This workshop will use an interactive approach, one-on-one coaching, and real-time application of learning (e.g., applying skills to work-related issues). Participants are actively engaged in the learning process through experiential activities that are both insightful and fun.
