Talent Development:
Effective Communication: It's Your Job (In-Person)
Many of us act on the bias that others see the world exactly as we do. In truth, we each have our own unique way of interacting with others. Participants will learn about distinct interpersonal communication styles and how to better relate to coworkers, the modes of communication, and listening barriers and how to overcome them. We'll examine the components of a communication interaction and discuss the importance of applying skills of more effective conversations.

The Plano Way:
1st Amendment Auditors: Who are they and what should you do? (In-Person)
First Amendment “auditors” show up unannounced at City buildings with cell phone cameras. They shoot video and ask a slew of questions, making people feel uncomfortable. While annoying, they are within their rights. The phenomenon of First Amendment "auditors" is growing in popularity, sometimes causing headaches for public servants - YOU. Their goal is to test government workers' knowledge of personal rights. But don't be fooled, most of the auditors monetize their work by publishing the videos on YouTube. Clicks and views equal revenue. They've hit several City departments and will likely be back. Join Media Relations Director Steve Stoler and learn how to handle these encounters.
