Title: Developing Communication and Conflict Management Skills for Successful Collaborations
Date: 10/3/2014 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Fee: None
Description: This workshop is an interactive activity that uses short videos of conversations between faculty mentors and graduate students/postdocs to facilitate discussion of strategies to set expectations and avoid conflicts in research teams. The strategy showcased for both setting expectations and managing conflicts is an interest-based approach of negotiation. That is, an approach that focuses on interests (i.e., core values and needs) rather than individual positions, when setting expectations or managing conflicts. The workshop also discusses how anger and other strong emotions can affect the outcomes of negotiations and how different decision making styles can affect group dynamics in research teams.
Presenter: Tony Nunez
Location: TBD

Capacity: 35
Registration for this workshop will open on September 8.
