Shift Yes

World-class improviser Galen Emanuele works with organizations to create a “Yes, And” culture to skyrocket communication, leadership and establish cohesive, highly engaged teams. In this program, he'll highlight the best practices of self-management, collaboration, responsibility, openness to change, and effective communication to foster productive and high-performing teams. Through thought-provoking activities aimed at enhancing leadership, building cohesive team cultures, and navigating conflict, you'll come away with actionable skills and tools to change the way you approach leadership as a team.

Facilitator: Galen Emanuele, Shift Yes

Professionals’ General Session // 4:15–5:30 p.m.

Positive Culture Change Framework

The many health and safety issues facing college students today are not new but addressing them require new ways of thinking. In this session, professionals will learn how shifting the way they approach health and safety issues can increase the likelihood of improved outcomes for students. A simple behavioral model will illustrate how imperative changing student beliefs is in improving health and safety related decisions. Our culture’s impact on student health and safety will be discussed and how working across the social environments will transform the system to one where health and safety is embedded into the college experience.
