Division C(ool) Training – Humbleness Doesn’t Have to be Scary @ Chemeketa Community College
Oct 26 @ 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Division C is focused on developing the 12 attributes that create high performing teams.

In October we will study attribute #4 – Humbleness Doesn’t Have to be Scary

High Performing Teams have a strong sense of self awareness, a well grounded confidence and allow team members to shine. Humbleness is not about putting yourself down, thinking of yourself less, or shrinking yourself down, it’s about thinking of others more! When one teaches, two learn and we all win.

Bring snacks. Join us after the training for a no host Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, or whatever your favorite coffee drink.
