Austin, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/27/2018 --The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) has announced it will host a Regional Workshop, scheduled for October 12, 2018, at Kansas City Kansas Community College in Kansas City, Kansas.

NISOD's Regional Workshops bring professional development closer to faculty, administrators, and staff through intensive one-day gatherings held in strategic locations throughout the country. These localized options help bring some of NISOD's outstanding resources closer to colleges in an effort to save them time and money.

The Kansas City Kansas Community College workshop, titled Emotional Intelligence, Efficacy, and Success, explores ways faculty and other professional colleagues can increase students' success, professional growth, and collaboration skills by improving their attitudes toward work, relationships, and learning. David R. Katz III, Executive Director of Organizational Development at Mohawk Valley Community College, will facilitate the workshop. In that role, David creates, implements, and oversees programs aimed at developing a vibrant culture of personal and professional enrichment that reinforces his college's goals focused on student success and empowerment.

"We're thrilled to provide workshop participants from KCKCC with a significant registration discount so they can attend this outstanding workshop," said Edward J. Leach, NISOD's executive director. "In addition, educators at community and technical colleges throughout Kansas and in neighboring states can participate in this high-quality, low-cost professional development opportunity without incurring the higher cost associated with traveling to a larger event at a more distant location."
