Programs to focus on power of positive attitudes, assertive communication

OSWEGO — The SUNY Oswego Metro Center will offer programs on two Thursdays in March designed to help participants learn how to better use communication skills to be more successful and effective in personal and work relationships.

The programs — “Cultivating Positive Attitudes and Emotions” on March 6 and “Relationship Building Through Assertive Communication” on March 17 — will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Metro Center, 2 Clinton Square in downtown Syracuse.

Mike Mullins, who will lead the interactive sessions, is a dynamic, highly rated trainer who helps participants gain insights and real skills that can be used immediately, organizers said.

The programs will utilize mindfulness techniques that will help people become more aware of how they interact with and react to people and will show them how they can be more assertive to get more out of their relationships.

Each program is $100.
