SHERIDAN — The Sheridan County YMCA is hosting three workshops May 21-22 that are open to the public.
These workshops will be presented by Michael Brandwein, internationally acclaimed speaker and expert on youth development, education, communication, team building, management and service.
Brandwein has written five best-selling books on training and supervising staff and wrote and presented three Emmy award-winning television programs on communicating with young people.
The session May 21 is free and will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library.

The morning session May 22 will be from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at a location to be determined.
“Practical and Powerful Skills for Communication and Team-Building Success” will teach techniques that can be used to build stronger teamwork. Discover the value of varying views, how to handle conflict positively and calmly and how to facilitate less talking behind backs and more honest and constructive feedback. Learn expert listening, persuasion and problem-solving skills.
The afternoon session May 22 will be from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at a location to be determined.
The afternoon topic, “Developing Positive Relationships: Outstanding Ways to Support and Serve Families,” demonstrates ways to build trusting and effective relationships with those to whom we provide service.
