NJSBA —  Paralegal Committee Business Dinner Meeting (Section Members only), Thurs., 6-8 p.m., at the New Jersey Law Center, 1 Constitution Sq., New Brunswick. Program: Understanding Personalities to Build Successful Attorney/Paralegal Teams. Guest speaker: Cedric Ashley, Esq., Co-Chair, NJSBA Diversity Committee and Co-Chair, NJSBA Law Office Management Committee. Why does the attorney always do it that way? He explains everything in such detail. Why does she always show up at the last minute to do something when she knew about it months ago?  Why does it seem like we can never communicate and be on the same page? Sometimes it seems like we are speaking two different languages. It seems like my boss just wants to avoid conflict and discussion when it comes how this firm operates (or fails to operate). If you have ever had these thoughts or conversations, you will benefit from this practical workshop on personality. We are who we are based on nature (how we are hard-wired) and nurture (our environment). If we can begin to understand more about our own personality type, we can begin to understand the personality types of others. Different personality types learn, work, communicate, make decisions, and handle conflict in varied ways. This workshop will offer a brief insight into these concepts and tips on building better teams. Cost: $20.
