We do a fun, relaxed Meetup where we all sit in groups of three and rotate tables every 15 minutes. Introverts and Extroverts love this style as everyone gets their turn and everyone who comes actually gets to meet at least ten people and go home with new insights and resources. Our focus is on helping people connect and move forward with their ideas, dreams, and social impact projects, organizations, and businesses.

Is there a business or organization that you have a Request for? Bring your ideas for how to make it better: more thoughtful, ethical or compassionate, and less dehumanizing, selfish or harmful. We'll help you turn your ideas into Requests. Visionary Society Requests is a new system that the community can use to engage with businesses and organizations in a way that wasn't possible before. Come to this Meetup to learn about Requests and start building them! We all go to businesses and organizations: cafes, restaurants, stores, theaters, schools, hospitals, hotels, churches, etc. Think about the places you use and how they operate. You can leave this Meetup with an active Request that you can actually use – with our Invitation Cards, and by spreading the Request in the community to help it gain momentum. Join us in this new, innovative area of Visionary Society! For more information and to RSVP please go to our Meetup page at https://www.meetup.com/meetup-group-BzTsXpFt/events/235336590/

Working on teams we often spend time getting buy-in. Sometimes this gets in the way of getting things done. We approach conflict in 3 primary ways: fight, avoid or give in. The fight style is direct and takes charge! If you use it skillfully, it can help you get work done. If you overdo it, this can take a toll on working relationships. Join us to learn how to use the fight style effectively to get more done. At the end of this workshop, you will have: – A better understanding of the “fight” style of conflict. – Tools to leverage the “fight” style. – Awareness to avoid the dark side. – Skills to manage others in “fight.” This workshop will be led by Hatch Innovation Parts Department member, Terra Soma. This workshop is open to the public, FREE for Hatch members, and $10 for nonmembers.
