Have you ever wondered how someone could have misunderstood you in a crucial conversation? Do you often feel frustrated when people “don’t get you?” Most of all, do you find yourself struggling to connect and communicate effectively to significant people in your work and personal life? Rose Snyder is a certified facilitator who has conducted communication workshops with corporations, nonprofits, Olympic athletes and coaches using Shapes by Psycho-Geometrics. This session will focus on learning communication and behavior styles and will center on learning to flex to meet the needs of those you interact with. We will also tackle how to manage conflict and have difficult conversations.

The goals of this session are:

  • To recognize and embrace different communication styles
  • To increase our emotional intelligence through improved self-awareness
  • To learn to be an effective communicator by leveraging these new skills

We will be taking the Shapes Assessment online during the workshop. Please be prepared to login to the internet to take the assessment (you will need a laptop or phone). We will be sharing our results and engaging in small group activities during this interactive workshop. No Shape is better or worse than another. This tool is meant to bring self-awareness as well as an appreciation and awareness of the other shapes. This appreciation allows us to recognize that the diversity of Shapes makes a stronger team.

(The Center for Healthy Nonprofits is sponsoring the cost of the assessments ($24.95); please do not sign up if you are not able to attend this in person session. We are holding registration to the first 30 applicants)


Please note that this event is in-person from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
