Title: Techniques of Reflective Listening and Generating Movement through Conflict

Presenter: Elizabeth Larsen

Description: In this session, Elizabeth will draw out select techniques of the mediation two-step (asking questions and reflecting back what was said to the speaker) from her training and apprenticeship at New York Peace Institute. Techniques of reflective listening include parroting, summarizing, validating, and rephrasing. In addition, Elizabeth will share techniques used in "generating movement" through a conflict -- including normalizing, time travel, silence, stroking, highlighting, and ideal visioning or future casting -- and how she has used these various techniques in mediating actual conflicts. You may find that these techniques also have utility in your work at Wagner -- perhaps in group meetings, one-on-one discussions, or in allowing a colleague to vent.


Title: Excel-lent Spreadsheet Tips and Tricks

Presenter: Pat Eaton

Description: Excel is a very powerful spreadsheet tool with many features that can make your life easier. This presentation will show some intermediate-level features and functions that are practical timesavers when dealing with data, and can be helpful in the everyday work we do at Wagner.
