Professional Development

 

In order to thrive we must adapt, grow and learn. Our personal and professional development is not optional, but imperative if we are to have lives that are fulfilled. At EdMICU we provide opportunities for learning that are current, collaborative and customized. In this section we have digital workshops, digital conferences and micro-credential modules. From our resources section we have Gotta Minute short learning videos, How to's and personal reflections. In one area you can expand what you know, interact with others, and gain practical and transformation skills for your personal and professional roles.

 
A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.

PARAPHRASING
DIGITAL WORKSHOP
 

Imagine a communication skill so powerful it can transform how you listen, how you connect, and your relationships. The Achilles Heel of communication is being misunderstood. No one really intends to be misunderstood and yet it seems to be ever-present. Our deep biological drive for connections and relationship is one thing that influences how we communicate. The paraphrase is perhaps the most powerful skill we have available that gives evidence of being connected. This course lays a foundation of skills that you can use to communicate with greater clarity and compassion.
