CSB Listening Salons 2017

Dear Community,

As you may recall from the opening forum, I am organizing my goals and strategy for 2017-2018 around a central theme:  Who and how are we called to serve today?

In order to address this theme, I am intentionally exploring the following questions within our community:

  1. As a campus community, how do we demonstrate a commitment to transformative inclusion?
  2. What does it mean to be a college for women today?
  3. How do we support collaboration and dialogue within CSB and between the two campuses?

Listening Salons enable us to explore this framing theme and questions and enable us to have important conversations about our future at CSB and our next strategic plan. Each of the Salons is in response to one of the questions and framed around a shared reading or a topic that addresses our future.

The second listening salon will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, in Gorecki 204A. This salon will focus on the question: How do we support collaboration and dialogue within CSB and between the two campuses? The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Annie McKee. Annie Mckee is a Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania where she teaches and leads the PennCLO Executive Doctoral program and the MedEd Master’s program. Her latest research was just published in her new book, How to Be Happy at Work: The Power of Purpose, Hope, and Friendship, published by Harvard Business Review Press. Annie’s other books include three bestsellers published by Harvard Business Review Press: Primal Leadership, with Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis (2002/2014); Resonant Leadership, with Richard Boyatzis (2005), and Becoming a Resonant Leader, with Richard Boyatzis and Frances Johnston (2008). She is also the author of Management: A Focus on Leaders (Pearson/Prentice Hall 2014) and is a prolific writer and blogger, featured on HBR.org.

While there is no reading required for the session, the following articles reflect Annie’s research and the topic she will share with us: 

How to be Happy at Work, is available at the College of Saint Benedict bookstore.
