APRIL BUSINESS BEFORE HOURS


"CHARISMA"
 
Presented by Brad Worthley

 
 
A brief description of Brad's topic for the BBH!
"Conversational Charisma-Mastering
Confidence, Communication & Collaboration"
Great communication skills are a learned behavior, not something you are born with. You might have been born with the gift of gab, but do your words endear people to you, or repel them away? Learn simple tips on how to increase sales, improve customer service or have better relationships within your organization. You will be shocked at how simplistic, yet how rare, these communitcation skills are. It will change the way you do business, the way you speak to your family and the way you raise children.

Some of the topics covered will include:
  • Why most people don't listen well
  • How FEAR can inhibit communication
  • Using more dialogue and less monologue
  • Asking permission before offering advice
  • Avoid making other people wrong

WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF


TRANSPORTATION NEWS 


Snohomish County Highway and Construction Updates


SR 530 Update - We held three community meetings this past week in Darrington, Oso and Arlington, and were thankful to hear the concerns, questions and comments from citizens who have been affected by the SR 530 mudslide. Amoung the information we shared was that the highway likely will not reopen until this fall. There is still a huge amount of cleanup work to do before we can even assess the roadway.

In the meantime, we are working on some potential alternatives, including opening up the Seattle City Light maintenance road to local traffic. We're working on agreements with property owners to get this done. It's a one-lane gravel road and before we open it, we must hire a contractor to maintain the road. Pilot cars will guide drivers through the route and cars won't be allowed to stop or pull over along the road. As soon as I have more information, I'll let you know. You can also stay up-to-date on SR 530 progress by visiting our website, including a link to sign up for SR 530 email alerts.

 

So Far, So Good On SR 203 - We've been doing single-lane closures on SR 203 between Duvall and Carnation for about a month in preparation for our upcoming paving project from Monroe to Carnation. Currently the daily closures are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for pavement repair and I'm pleased to report that so far backups have been minimal with no real delays through the work zones. It's probably a good idea to add a few extra minutes to your trip but so far things are going well. You can stay updated on this project as well as work on the SR 9 widening project and the SR 522 widening project by checking out our Construction Update Report.

 

WSDOT's Super Heros - Our Incident Response Team (IRT) workers are traffic super heros, always ready to swoop into action. Their superpower? Clearing anything on state highways that stands in the way of you and where you're going. Tomorrow, I'll be on the ground in an IRT truck to live tweet from @wsdot_traffic. Follow #goIRT on Twitter from 6-10 a.m. Friday for an inside look at life as an IRT. I also wrote this blog for tips on how you can help IRT keep traffic moving!

 

North Cascades Highway Clearing Continues - Progress continues to be made in our effort to get the SR 20 North Cascades Highway cleared and open. We're hoping to have it ready for traffic right around the second week of May. Crews are working on both the east side and the west side of the highway and avalanche crews are on site monitoring unstable slopes. No licensed motor vehicles are allowed beyond the closure gates but hikers, bikers, and snow mobiles are. We work Monday through Thursday but we leave Friday through Sunday open for recreational use, though please be careful and check avalanche forecasts and weather reports. And also please stay clear of our equipment.
