The 2020 Fall Seminar Series will be presented in three 1.5 hour segments on three days over a three month period. We will provide adequate time during each session for both the presentation and participant interaction. The Series will be offered via Zoom as we have done with the Quarterly Call In Events.

Presentation Topics

Session 1 | Anger & Communities - Anger is one of the densest forms of communication and extremely detrimental to trust. How do you recognize weaponized anger? What are the causes and the underlying issues for leaders? What are the possible cures?

Session 2 | Shame - If shame is truly “the learning affect”, why does it feel so hurtful and why has it become the weapon of choice by elected officials, residents and other disenfranchised individuals? What does shame look like and feel like and what are it’s causes? How are shame and anger related and how do they contribute to conflict and poor communications? The internet and social media have made it effortless to revisit one’s past actions or indiscretions to provoke shame, just consider “the cancel culture”. What role does shame play in today’s polarized politics, Black Lives matter Movement, wealth inequity and the provision of public services?

Session 3 | Integrating Pandemic, Budget Impact & Human Toll - Navigating the financial and budgetary implications of the pandemic and the technical and human toll.
