职场软技能培训圆满结束

Soft Skills Professional Development Training Well Received by Tech Employees.

On May 8, 2016, a soft skills professional development training session, hosted by CHIME at Microsoft in Redmond in collaboration with professional coach and trainer Di Ye, drew an audience of 80 employees from Microsoft and the greater Seattle region.

IMG_3193Over time, many Chinese employees have expressed their interest in improving communication skills to further advance their career. CHIME therefore invited Di Ye, a professional coach and trainer who is also a former program manager at Microsoft and MIT graduate with Chinese/American cross-cultural background, to lead this training event.

To better serve the audience needs, CHIME’s leadership team researched CHIME members’ professional development needs beforehand and shared them with Di Ye.  Di then custom-designed the training to address those needs.

This training elicited an interactive, bold, open and honest group dynamic. Di introduced effective communication tools and professional development concepts. In addition, Di also addressed audience’s questions across a wide range of topics including emotion regulation, establishing and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships, conflict resolution, discerning and breaking through limiting beliefs, career planning, managing up, and developing leadership qualities. Di’s training was well-contextualized for the audience as she incorporated her personal experiences working in the tech industry as an Asian American and her understanding in Microsoft’s corporate culture.

IMG_3204The training was well received by the audience. Among the many positive feedback received, audience expressed deeper understanding and enthusiasm in how to effectively collaborate and communicate at work place. Many also walked away with an unexpected and renewed mindset about their own career development. CHIME Board will incorporate audience feedback and its members’ needs to organize more professional development events for CHIME members’ benefits.

5月8日下午,微软华人协会组织的职场软技能培训在Commons圆满落幕,约有80名微软员工参加了此次培训。

IMG_3189不少华人员工反映,希望能在北美职场开阔自己的职业发展前景,沟通和交流能力也需要进一步提升,因此微软华协根据各方需求特组织这次培训。为此微软华人协会特地请来毕业于MIT,曾经担任过微软Office部门产品经理的职场软技能专业培训师叶迪箴作为本次培训的讲师。为了使培训能够更贴合微软情况以及华人员工的需求,华协在培训前作了详细的调研,并与培训师提前充分沟通。叶迪箴以自己在微软的经历作为参考,结合事先调研结果,精心设计准备培训内容。

培训中,培训师与参训员工充分互动,大家踊跃发言,坦诚地交流沟通。培训师对参训员工的问题答疑解惑, 并对提问员工的职业发展提出意见和建议。对于大家最为关心的人际关系处理,情绪管理,心态突破,个人事业发展规划,以及领导素质培养等话题, 培训师都分别列为专题, 一一地详细讲解。

IMG_3197本次培训帮助员工们更好的融入到微软的企业文化和工作环境中,进一步发掘自己的潜能,实现自己的价值,也为企业创造更多价值。

培训结束后,大家纷纷表示收益非浅,不仅提升了团队协作意识、强化了沟通交流能力,还拓宽了职业发展思路。微软华协将继续结合大家的反馈,组织更多类似活动,帮助微软华人员工在职场发展上不断进步和成长。

2016 微软亚洲春节晚会完美落幕

CHIME (Chinese Microsoft Employees) has hosted the 2016 Microsoft Asian Spring Festival Celebration this past Saturday in Overlake Christian Church. After an extremely long, exhausting yet fulfilling day, we all went home feeling mission accomplished. We’ve made a new record with the number of audience attending our event this year. The quality of each performance was also top-notch. CHIME Board has worked on organizing this event for the last 3-4 months and every board member involved in this has scarified a lot, especially those in the Spring Festival Performance Committee. However, all of these would not have been possible without the help from our beloved volunteers. Thank You!

今年的下午活动吸引了非常多的小朋友们和家长们;晚上的演出节目丰富多彩。更值得开心的是,今年的晚会参与人数达到了历史新高,节目质量之高,品种的多样化也是前所未有的。

这些都离不开微软华人协会理事会成员们这几个月来的努力和志愿者们的帮助! 没有大家的积极参与以及志愿者们的付出,我们不可能能够成功举办如此盛大的晚会。特别是导演组的几位成员在过去几个月里对整个活动的付出和牺牲是我们有目共睹的。

亲爱的观众朋友们,再次感谢您对2016微软亚洲春节晚会的支持。为了更直接的听取您的意见,在未来组织让您更加满意的活动,我们特开展本次问卷调查,希望能得到您的真实想法与宝贵意见。恳请您用3-5分钟时间帮忙填答这份问卷。题目选项无对错之分,所有数据只用于统计分析,请您按自己的实际想法填写,帮助我们在明年举办更加精彩的晚会,谢谢!为了感谢您填写本次的问卷调查,帮助我们把明年春晚办的更好,我们会在愿意提供Email地址的观众朋友间抽取获奖者送上价值$50的Amazon Gift Card。

我们的摄影师们还在紧张的对照片进行后期处理,在已有的照片中我们挑选了一些,让大家欣赏整场晚会的一些精彩片段。

不少观众朋友问到这是否是一个安排好的桥段。这是真实的现场求婚,女主角事先并不知情。
