Dealing with Sticky Situations: It's NOT YOU
Being in the service industry we are generous and compassionate people. This sometimes opens us up to vulnerable situations. Have you found yourself in a sticky situation and wondered how in the world you got there? Or wondered how in the world are you going to get out of it?
Join Susan Hunsberger as our moderator for a round table discussion on recognizing mental health issues in clients, dealing with, and "firing" difficult clients, and tips for working with clients with anxiety, depression, and OCD tendencies. Listen to a few of our NAPO chapter members share their sticky situations and learn how they navigated through them.
Please note that for a round table discussion to be a success everyone must come without judgment and with respect for their peers. This is a forum in which ~ for the richest outcomes ~ we should feel free to be open and vulnerable. Tremendous learning can take place when we do this and become receptive to new ideas! As a reminder, we have all pledged to honor and uphold the NAPO Code of Ethics.
If you have a relevant situation to share please email Susan Hunsberger by June 10th.
About Our Moderator
Our very own Susan Hunsberger, MA, CD and ADD Specialist and owner of Strategize Organize, LLC, believes that organizing, while rarely taught, is a learn-able skill. By listening gently to her clients and honoring their unique situations, she helps them find hopeful, practical solutions and equips them with strategies to carry forward into their everyday lives.
Since 2007, Susan has served a wide variety of clientele in the Ann Arbor area, specializing in adults and students with ADD/ADHD. She's a member of Think Local First, is on the Education Development team for the Institute for Challenging Disorganization, and has served as Program Director of the Michigan chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers. She recently co-authored an article with Sari Solden titled "A Collaborative Conversation: Executive Function Challenges, ADHD & Chronic Disorganization,” which is published in The ICD Guide to Collaborating with Professional Organizers.
Before embarking on her organizational quest, she taught for 12 years in Chicago and London, where she honed her listening skills and her respect for each person's individual challenges. Susan holds a masters degree in Integrated Teaching and Learning from Ohio State.
In addition to organizing, Susan enjoys hiking in Bird Hills and tending her yard and rain garden. She lives in Ann Arbor with Neko, her amazing organizing cat, and Trevor, her amazing UNorganizing husband.
