    Primary event: What Constitutes a Conflict Intelligent Organization?

    Inevitable as it is, interpersonal and team conflict in workplaces is generally not viewed as an opportunity for growth and development of the organization or its staff. Rather, ill-managed conflict or avoiding the signals it raises can result in costly problems due to attrition, stress and medical leaves, reduced productivity, low morale and even loss of reputation.

    On April 17, 2019 please join conflict specialist Cinnie Noble, who will share her expertise about the opportunities to be gained from facing conflict head on. She will discuss what constitutes a conflict intelligent organization and what the ingredients are for building one.

    Bio of the speaker:

    Cinnie Noble is a former social worker and lawyer who entered the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution in the 90’s. She is a certified mediator and coach (PCC) and is a pioneer of the CINERGY® model of conflict management coaching. Cinnie coaches and trains her model worldwide and is passionate about helping people find their way through conflict and training others to do so.

    Cinnie is the author of two coaching books – Conflict Mastery: Questions to Guide You(https://www.cinergycoaching.com/conflict-mastery-questions-guide/) and Conflict Management Coaching:  The CINERGY™ Model (https://www.cinergycoaching.com/conflict-management-coaching-cinergy-model/). In 1991, Cinnie was appointed Member of the Order of Canada for her work in the travel industry for people with disabilities.

    Primary event:  Want High Engagement? Help Employees Find Their Purpose.

    For thirty years, companies have tried to increase employee engagement with little success. It is time to switch the focus from engagement to wellbeing. By focusing on wellbeing, we can help employees connect their purpose to their work and as a result, rekindle the joy in work. This presentation will demonstrate the link between engagement and wellbeing and provide the road map for embarking on the wellbeing journey.  By doing so, organizations can experience an increase in customer satisfaction, a decrease turnover and greater profitability. Our presenter, Julie McGovern, will share a real life example of one organization’s three year journey to increase employee wellbeing.  

    Speaker's Bio: 

    Julie McGovern is currently the Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland. In this role, she established the wellbeing framework to guide all workforce initiatives.

    Ms. McGovern has executive experience in various HR roles, including health benefits administration, talent development and recruitment, as well as guiding hospital mergers and integration. She has a Master’s degree in Corporate and Organizational Communications from Fairleigh Dickinson University and holds the Senior Professional in Human Resources, as well as SHRM-Senior Certified Professional designations.

    Julie is the author of the book: The Happy Employee. She also co-authored the article Engaging Employees in Wellbeing: Moving from the Triple Aim to the Quadruple Aim, which was published in Nursing Administration Quarterly.

    Ms. McGovern is a board member for the Anne Arundel Workforce Initiatives Board and the Anne Arundel County United Way Partnership Board.

    Primary event: Finding Wellness in the Workplace: Where does our power come in? with Elizabeth Hunt

    Our social media feeds are rife with the word “wellness” - along with it’s kissing cousin “self-care”. Everywhere we turn we are urged to be well and take better care of ourselves in both our personal and professional lives. Yet, what does this actually mean? What if wellness wasn’t only about lunchtime yoga in the coffee room, or team-building retreats, or vision boards or standing meetings? What if wellness at work was rooted in the simple act of naming and acknowledging power in our organizational structures? In this participatory workshop we will look at the concept of wellness through the lens of power. Using a power relationship framework, we will have the opportunity to each dig into our own experience and context to name how power plays out in our work lives. Together we will explore how the act of naming power is a move towards wellness and wellbeing.

    Speaker’s Bio
