SheHive Workplace Building Workshop

Creating a cooperative workplace is often a simple task but sometimes, for a variety of reasons, even well-meaning co-workers can get on each others’ nerves — especially when in a manager-subordinate position. Ferndale’s SheHive is an organization that works to connect women of all professions and is hosting a workshop series titled Like a Boss: Building Workplaces that Don’t Suck from October to December on the first and third Thursday of each month. The event will focus on female managers in often male-dominated fields like the automotive industry and IT.
“This six-part series is for women who manage others and want coaching on new or different ways to handle day-to-day challenges at work,” said event organizers. “Join women who have lived through your situation, have ideas and experiences to share, and who are interested in how your experiences will help them. We’ll use a format that is based on sharing, listening, receiving feedback and planning for action.”
In the first session, members of the discussion will decide on priority topics that will be developed as sessions continue.
“SheHive KeyHolder, Pam Hansen, and SheHive Founder, Ursula Adams, are both Organizational Development consultants whose work has included complex culture change initiatives for clients in automotive IT, health care, nonprofit and financial services technology,” organizers write. “They separately both manage successful coaching practices dedicated to helping clients deepen their self-awareness, build their strengths and practice strategies to grow as effective leaders.”
