The beginning of the year is a good time to consider our professional abilities. This might result in our "skilling up" in some areas. For some, such as educators, sometimes this is referred to as "professional development" or PD. It can take the form of intensive training and developing "hard skills" or more subtle "soft skills." In this newsletter, I will share a range of professional development and training opportunities coming up that focus on innovative skills relating to global issues, peacebuilding, conflict resolution, and international education. These will include conferences as well as "one off" trainings.
Right now I'm arranging my spring travel. If you are interested in a visit for a career or coaching workshop or a talk on the field, let me know.
