Webinar: “Accelerate Out of the Curve: Episode Three”

This webinar series is presented by Professional and Continuing Education at Boise State.

Accelerate Out of the Curve

We’re all affected by the current COVID-19 crisis and its impact on daily life in the United States and beyond. As we all work to “flatten the curve” and collectively meet this crisis head-on, what steps might we take now to prepare ourselves, our businesses, and our communities to “accelerate out of the curve” and rapidly move back into actions and efforts that build up a healthy economy that is stronger than ever before?

This series is intended to provide tools and skills that will strengthen our ability to meet this challenge together and accelerate out of the curve as soon as possible.

Webinar Objectives:

    • Treat people like adults and assume positive intent. Recognize that each person has their own decision-making authority.
    • Start with yourself – build emotional intelligence so you can connect on a meaningful level and provide inspiration.
    • Create an emotional “hook” – engagement and belonging are the secret sauce.
    • Set the stage for high motivation and learn to give feedback so it can be digested and put into practice.
