Saturday, November 2, 2019

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Center for Art & Social Engagement (CASE) welcomes Lillian Warren, president of Warren Insight, to campus to host the Culture of Collaborative Leadership Workshops Series. The nine-week series of workshops is designed to provide attendees with the tools to strengthen networks and build potential in creative communities.

Building Productive Teams, the third in a series workshops, is a highly participatory workshop for artists, arts administrators and community leaders focuses on building productive teams.

Team work is inherent in artistic collaborations. It is critical when working with the community, within an arts organization or with your board. Learn concrete approaches for building productive teams, diagnosing problems and helping teams excel whether you are the team leader or not. Topics include: improving communications, setting expectations in a way that empowers team members to act and holds them accountable for results, techniques for dealing with difficult people, making tough conversations easier and improving your ability to give feedback so it can be heard and acted on.

Targeted for arts professionals with at least two- to three-years' experience. This includes independently practicing artists in the visual arts, music and performance, as well as arts administrators. The workshop is designed with graduate students and/or experienced professionals in mind, and relies on a body of experiences.

Meeting weekly for three weeks, participants will focus on frameworks for negotiation; negotiation approaches; and advanced techniques and methodologies.

Discounted packages are available for participants interested in registering for the nine-week series, including all three workshops: Communicating to Connect and Inspire Action, Collaborative Negotiations and Building Productive Teams.

A limited number of scholarships for students are also available. Contact Sixto Wagan at swagan@uh.edu for more information.
