Session Duration
1 Hour

Learning Objective
1. Understand the concept of the Drama Triangle and why drama in the workplace is such a huge distractor and threat to the organization.
2. Instantly recognize drama in the workplace the instant it occurs.
3. Learn effective skills and techniques to help powerfully shift out of drama to create a more peaceful, harmonious and effective workplace.

Session Description
In this engaging, interactive presentation, Dr. Skeen tackles a huge and often complex issue affecting companies of all sizes and types—worker disengagement, distraction and drama. In today’s hyper-competitive business climate, these can all manifest due to a range of different factors, both internal and external, but ultimately the end result is always similar: lost productivity, low morale and workplace/career satisfaction; and in the worst situations, organizational discord, employee attrition and organizational failure. The goal of the presentation is to help participants instantly recognize drama in the workplace the instant it occurs, while teaching effective skills and techniques to help powerfully shift out of drama to create a more peaceful, harmonious and effective workplace.
