April 24, 2018 Introduction to Schema: When to Accept a Job Outside Your Comfort Zone
This workshop is an introduction to the concept of schema and how it affects decision making in accepting assignments in an appropriate way. We will use a maternity appointment as the example as we walk participants through the decision-making process of whether to accept the job or not (assuming appropriate level is held).
Participants will learn what schema means, examine their personal schemata, learn about shared schemata and dissect an interpreting assignment using schema in order to better make decisions. Discuss roles and how decision making affects our ability to accept assignments that we are qualified for but may not have immediate prior experience.
