Add to Calendar 09/05/2019 08:00 AM 09/05/2019 9:30 AM America/New_York Your Career is Your Business In our fast-paced, overstimulated world, it’s difficult to be purposeful and intentional about how we manage our careers. When we are not intentional, however, we rely on others to guide our careers, which may not align with our own values and goals. We may also have unrealistic expectations of the support others will provide. bluebird bio, 60 Binney Street, 10th Floor, Aviary Room, Cambridge, MA 02142

 - Interrupting Bias
More Information and Registration

Add to Calendar 10/24/2019 06:00 PM 10/24/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Interrupting Bias Despite strides towards inclusion and equity in our society, messages abound about what it means to be of certain identities. We are socialized with these stereotypes all around us and these messages are so pervasive that despite our best intentions, we sometimes fall into biased behaviors and thinking, often unconsciously. In this workshop led by Chris Haigh, we will define bias, understand where it comes from, reflect on our own biases, and examine strategies for interrupting bias in ourselves and others. Come prepared to engage in self-reflection and in dialogue with your colleagues about an issue that truly affects us all. bluebird bio, 60 Binney Street, 10th Floor, Aviary Room, Cambridge, MA 02142

Ideas Irresistible

Add to Calendar 10/30/2019 06:00 PM 10/30/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York How to Make Your Ideas Irresistible At the heart of communications lies one seemingly elusive goal: how can we actually get people to love our ideas as much as we do? Thankfully, there’s a surprisingly simple answer, and it lies in how we come up with our ideas in the first place. Tamsen Webster spent 20 years making messages to move minds and markets and four years turning ideas into action as the Executive Producer of one of the largest TEDx events in the world Vertex, 50 Northern Avenue, 9th Floor, Boston, MA

November 19 - Wait. What? Or
How to Get Curious When
Someone is Clearly Wrong
More Information and Registration

Add to Calendar 11/19/2019 06:00 PM 11/19/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Wait. What? Or How to Get Curious When Someone is Clearly Wrong Our most difficult conversations are characterized by our near certainty that we are right and they are wrong. This would be OK if the only opinion that mattered was our own. The challenge is that when we need to lead and collaborate, their opinions and perspectives matter, too. However, it is nearly impossible to get curious about what they are thinking if we are stuck in our own certainty. In this workshop, you will learn a simple and time-tested tool to step out of our certainty and into a stance of curiosity where questions flow more easily, shifting the conversation into constructive and collaborative dialogue.
