Gilbert Municipal Court Fall Court Conference

The Gilbert Municipal Court welcomes court employees to participate in a full day (or half day) of training, education and networking. This is a FREE COJET opportunity scheduled for September 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Both classes offer practical tools for working within the court environment as well as an opportunity to further your education within the judicial branch.

Morning Session:

9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. - 'Good Choices: How Being Mindful Can Change Your Life'

Trainer: Farah Azadeh

In this class, participants will learn about the importance of making morally correct choices in life especially when dealing with themselves and others. Participants will learn about the importance of self-knowledge and self-reflection. We will discuss the actions to take (or not take) in order to be respected and appreciated by friends, family, and strangers. The tips shared in the class will articulate how participants can lead the good life in the fullest sense of the phrase.

11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. - Lunch on your own

Afternoon session:

1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. - 'Active Listening for Court Employees'

Trainers: Matthew Estes

Active listening is one of those concepts that everyone agrees is a good thing, but no one agrees on why that is the case. In this class, participants will first examine why listening is such a crucial skill, particularly for Court employees. After taking an active listening assessment, participants will be given an opportunity to re-think their own listening techniques. Last, the class will apply active listening techniques to specific court situations and scenarios.
