    Unravel the Mysteries of Excel


    The goal is higher productivity, lower frustration. The way to that goal is to learn the little secrets a self-taught user never knew existed. This Excel essentials class is ideal for self-taught Excel users.

    In this class you will learn how to customize Excel to suit your preferences; the Two-Step Chart; basic formulas; speedy data entry; controlling page layouts, columns, rows, and margins; and managing spreadsheets. You will also learn charting features (and the super-secret to charts) and by the time you are done you will finally feel in charge of Excel, rather than at the mercy of it.

    Seats are limited and the deadline to register is fast approaching.

    Conflict is unavoidable and a solid understanding of nonverbal communication is a key advantage that produces more effective results with others during crucial conversations and challenging times.

    This workshop explores the communication process from the perspective of how information is conveyed using micro expressions and other nonverbal communication with particular emphasis on conflict. Statistically, only a meager 7% of communication is related to the specific words spoken. We will explore nonverbal communication in bite size pieces so participants end the day having learned specific techniques to interpret and utilize the remaining 93% and positively work with that knowledge.

    For more information and to enroll, visit the Nonverbal Communication and Conflict web page.
