Zonta Club of SCV will open the 2016-17 series of its free LifeForward workshops for women with a workshop titled “Communication & Relationship Skills,” which teaches participants how to be more effective with family, in the workplace and the community. The program is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20, running from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Avenue.
The August 20 workshop will be presented by relationship coach Doris Marie Zimmer and life effectiveness coach Alex Urbina. The workshop will deal with the impact of commitment and trust in communication; three essential elements of relationships—with self, family and workplace; seven secrets kids need from Mom without Dad in the house; and communication and dysfunctions that occur from broken homes.
Doris Marie Zimmer
As a relationship coach, Zimmer works with families, groups and individuals for improved relationships, leadership and team building. Urbina is an expert in the field of personal development, specializing in teen, parent and family relationships.
Women who arrive by the 10 a.m. workshop start time are entered in a drawing for a free gift certificate. Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register at least one week in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, set budgets and file taxes, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is usually dark during July and December), in cooperation with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Habitat for Humanity Returning Women Veterans and Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services. Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
