SCHRA is excited to welcome back Lisa Marone to facilitate the Annual Professional Development Event, sponsored by Darigold.  Lisa Marone is a highly sought-out professional trainer, speaker, coach, and facilitator who credits her success and leadership abilities to transparency, practical life experience, and everyone who ever told her “no.” Lisa bases her training and coaching methods on her “Triple A-chievement” and CHOICE & BEING models, and encourages you to keep this quote in the front of your mind as you create greatness in your own life: “You have never lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. [Anonymous]”.   Thank you to Darigold for sponsoring the Professional Development Event.

Whether we choose to admit or ignore our own biases, we all experience implicit and hidden prejudices which can lead to conflict in the workplace. When this occurs, negative feelings and challenges both personally and professionally, are likely to arise. We witness decreases in morale, productivity, and employee loyalty. Even worse, we may be the ones displaying these characteristics.


Many believe conflict is a “bad” thing and that differing views should be ignored or silenced. However, conflict (also known to be related to fighting, arguing, debating, dismissing, contrasting, opposing, etc.) can be very healthy when addressed with
respect and an open mindset. By using appropriate conversational techniques and a high level of intentionality, we truly have the ability to minimize our biases and build a culture of unity and inclusion in the workplace.


During this engaging and experiential training, Lisa Marone will gently open eyes, minds, and hearts to ways of building relationships, merging silos, and disintegrating walls. It will be humbling and unfamiliar, and possibly even emotional. Participants will  be asked to allow their vulnerable selves to come along, and can be assured they will be supported and encouraged in a safe environment as they explore this foreign model.


The material will be presented through a variety of teaching methods and tools including informational lecturing, one-on-one conversations, small & large group discussion, and individual reflection activities. For those attending the full day training, there will be an opportunity to research, develop, and present material to bring back to their offices.


The benefits from this training are immediate and enduring, and everyone will walk away a better person, employee, or manager, because of it. Be a part of the change you wish to see in the workplace.
