 Presenters:   Archie M. Barrett Jr., President Compliance Environmental International, Inc.; Bob Harrison, Senior Account Executive Unlimited Restoration, Inc.

 Unexpected disasters are an unfortunate reality for all Universities and Colleges .  Fires, floods/water damage, and mold growth are all tragedies that can strike any size facility. When such disasters occur, what is your strategy, are you prepared?

 The Four Styles of Communication at Work: Which one is yours? 

 Presenter:   Celina Ryan, Facilities Training Coordinator/Facilities & Human Resources, American University
Assertive, Aggressive, Passive and Passive Aggressive. These are the four basic styles of communication. While at work, do you ever wonder how you are perceived?  Do you know which style you lean towards? This interactive session will focus on the definitions of each, what the differences are, the appropriate contexts for each style, and intentions behind action.   

Session Objectives:

 ·        Examine the differences between the four styles of communication in the workplace 

 ·        Explore ways to apply these concepts in order to enhance your work


 Following the educational program, an optional tour will be available of the SECU Arena.
