Effective Collaboration, Part I (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Personal Skills Development
When working with clients and colleagues some statisticians are limited, not by their technical skills, but by their communication skills. This practical workshop will help you become a more effective statistician when working collaboratively to solve problems and implement solutions. In the first part of the workshop you learn about and practice how to structure and conduct effective, efficient collaboration meetings. The second part will guide you through key communication skills essential for success as a statistician. Throughout the workshop you will practice these non-technical skills in groups. You will also learn how to analyze video data taken during meetings with clients to systematically improve your collaboration skills. The methods you learn and practice in this workshop will assist you in your efforts to improve your effectiveness as you serve in all of your professional roles.
