Upcoming Continuing Education Workshops

 

Wednesday, July 6, 2022 – University of Maryland School of Social Work Continuing Education: “Self Leadership and Management: Setting and Maintaining Boundaries and Priorities at Work”

Description: Can you say “no” to your supervisor? How do you decide what’s most important to work on and what you can save for another day? Do you spend so much time managing your employees that you don’t have enough time for your own work? How do you keep from getting burned out? In this workshop, participants will learn about self-leadership and self-management, and when and how to do both to prevent burnout and be more successful at work. Participants will learn about the concept of emotional competence: Identifying their emotions and needs to inform effective decision-making and behavior at work. We will also learn about how to identify core needs and values as the foundation for developing healthy boundaries and priorities at work. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Upon the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate between the concepts of self-leadership and self-management.
  • Identify professional situations that call for self-leadership and self-management.
  • Explain why setting boundaries at work is essential to burnout prevention, as well as personal and organizational success.
  • Describe an effective process for setting and maintaining effective priorities and boundaries in their professional life.
