    Beginning on March 28, 2017, YOUR State Park will be offering weekly nature rambles. Each Tuesday afternoon at 3 PM you can come along for an hour or so of nature exploration or local history discovery. We will continue these "W.O.W.W." walks until early May.

Or, we might enjoy a demonstration of local history or folklore. Each nature ramble or local history demonstration will be led by one of our Park Rangers, and will be a great chance for nature enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy, experience and learn from nature nearby.

These productions celebrate the culture and stories of the people of Jonesborough and the Southern Appalachian Region. Now in its third season, “A Night with the Yarn Exchange” is a monthly, scripted production, based on local stories and regional music, and performed by an inter-generational, multi-cultural cast of local actors, storytellers, and musicians, to create an audio patchwork quilt of what it means to be home in the mountains.

    The Jonesborough Yarn Exchange is a community building group and open to anyone who would like to participate. Everyone is welcome, from all ages and backgrounds, regardless of experience. If you live here, you belong! If you have a story to tell, this is the place! In addition to the live performances and the local broadcasts, the production is also streamed online by the local NPR affiliate WETS FM 89.5 on their HD channel 1, so the world can listen to and be inspired by the stories of Jonesborough, Tennessee, and the people of Appalachia. The radio performances are aired the last Wednesday of the month on HD Channel 1 HERE

    For tickets to the live production, held the fourth Monday of every month at the International Storytelling Center, call 423-753-1010 or purchase at the door.

    - Managers and leaders need to be able to communicate effectively in order to engage and connect with others. This requires listening effectively, avoiding filters or biases, rephrasing, and speaking persuasively. Exceptional listening skills and the ability to convince others to your way of thinking make the difference between good and great leaders. Bestselling author and highly respected leadership consultant, Marshall Goldsmith, devotes an entire chapter in his book “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There” to the importance of listening skills. He asserts that 80% of your success in learning from other people is in how well you listen. He believes that many people regard listening as a passive activity when, in fact, it is a highly active process engaging every muscle in your bodies, particularly the brain. Pure listening builds trust, credibility, and respect. One reason is because when you fully listen, instead of trying to compose your response, the result is a relevant and on-target response. What you say is proof of how well you listen. In addition to listening skills, a recent survey of Fortune 1000 firms determined that persuasion skills are one of the top 10 skills manager and leaders need for success. The ability to influence people is regarded as vital to the overall effectiveness of teams and organizations.

    At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

    Create opportunities for feedback to close the communication loop
    Demonstrate effective questioning and listening skills that strengthen relationships
    Consider various forms of communication and their impact
