Dark No meeting at Double Tree
Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL)
99 West 12th Avenue
$4 Entry Fee
Tour of The C.E.L.L.: Wednesday, October 29 at around 12PM. (This is a DARK Weds for the Club.) The C.E.L.L. staff are willing to run a fully-guided tour to accommodate members. Depending on how many people want to go tour The C.E.L.L., I will tell them what time we'd like the tour to end and they will pace according. They will offer members a reduced admission price of only $4 per person for the tours.
Debbie Lynch and I (Patti Bateman) are planning a couple of carpool vehicles for the people currently signed up. If we have more than 10 total, we will recruit another driver. We will park in the Parking Garage across from the D.A.M. and meet in the plaza area just outside The C.E.L.L., which is on the south end of D.A.M. plaza nearest 12th.

Communication (How to do it Better)
Roger Frame, Ph.D. talked about identifying the make-up of people you need to communicate with. Knowing the preferences of people and talking in terms and the manner they prefer minimizes their resistance to your ideas and the suggestions being offered.
From Roger's blog:
It turns out that people have different preference styles that influence how they work. Some people have vivid imaginations and are great seeing the big picture. They love change. Others excel in implementing details. They tend to be neat and orderly. Rather than seeing the relationship of parts to the whole, they prefer to see things sequentially. A third style is fascinated by numbers. They like to analyze options. They value people who are focused and to the point. They have little time for idle chit-chat. The fourth style tends to be more emotional, and to value social interaction. They may be more distracted if someone enters the room, but they excel at developing social networks.
Everyone functions with all four styles, but most prefer one or two, maybe even 3 styles. Preferences however, are not necessarily abilities. Just because a person prefers to attend to details, does not mean that they have the ability to manage complex projects requiring attention to detail.
Roger gave members his book Don't Carve the Turkey with a Chainsaw on resolving family conflict..
Roger's presentation was filled with examples and illustrations. My notes were inadequate to recreate the detail offered.
