The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

Authenticity is a buzzword. Search “high performing teams” and the word authentic will appear in reference to individuals, relationships, communication, and more. But what does authenticity mean in a team context?
What, precisely, do we mean by authentic communication? Will authentic communication really make a difference in the health, happiness, and success of your team? How can you encourage authentic communication in others?
In this session, we will work with a Communication Toolkit, which will allow you to choose from a variety of tools to communicate authentically in professional situations, whether in a team setting or one-on-one, as well as to bring out authentic communication in others.
We will use elements of storytelling to add depth to our communication, and you will learn a framework for refining your message for your intended audience.
