"Difficult people surround us, and conflict is inevitable. None of us escapes difficult interactions, nor are we immune from being difficult ourselves at times. Part of a successful professional toolbox is the ability to address situations where real or potential conflict arises. This course will provide you with a variety of skills that can help you manage yourself and your responses as you navigate these difficult exchanges. This class will address some specific skills and dialogue that you can use to help your encounters with difficult people."

I've heard Diane speak before and you won't want to miss this one!  Whether it's a co-worker, your carrier, broker, TPA, or maybe it's yourself, come get some tips on how to deal with and communicate with the difficult people in our lives. 

Please use the link below to pre-register.  Remember, you may pay at the door, but help us avoid a shortage of seating and food by not showing up unannouced.  The deadline for registration (or cancellation) is at Noon Friday, September 2nd.  The cutoff is earlier than usual due to the holiday on Monday, September 5th.

RIMS UTAH CHAPTER SEES SIGNIFICANT MEMBERSHIP INCREASE

Increased Demand for Advanced Risk Management Capabilities Drives Practitioners to RIMS

NEW YORK (March X, 2016) — Just as organizations continue to lean on their risk management departments to achieve strategic objectives, risk professionals around the world continue to lean on RIMS for resources and networking opportunities to deliver value to their organizations. As a result of this trend, RIMS Utah Chapter experienced a 14 percent increase in membership in 2015.

“While the ability to connect with the world’s risk management community remains a top member benefit, the opportunities RIMS provides for members to interact and share ideas with their local peers has proven to be just as valuable,” said RIMS Chief Executive Officer Mary Roth. “It’s always rewarding to see that the Society’s resources continue to inspire. Congratulations to RIMS Utah Chapter for successfully delivering exceptional value to your local risk professional community.”

 

The Utah Chapter, based in Salt Lake City, will be recognized with the Society’s Membership Growth SuperStar Award at RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Diego in April.
