Employers and managers risk drowning out valuable input and alienating employees if they simply push information out and dictate direction. However, providing and managing invitations to participate can be challenging. In other words, moving from monologue to dialog is necessary, yet difficult. You must balance presenting clear information concisely – that is, commanding the room -- with facilitating input and innovation – in other words, collaborating creatively.

Being bilingual is good for the brain and the earlier children start to learn two languages, the easier and more successful that bilingual development can be. We know that language begins to develop before babies begin to talk, so this session will focus on building two or more languages from the very beginning. Karen Nemeth will share developmentally appropriate ideas for supporting home languages and introducing new languages in play and caring routines.We’ll talk about serious, evidence-based strategies for bilingual babies – and we’ll have fun too!
