Understanding Our Strengths and Weaknesses in the Workplace
Feb. 4, 10:45 a.m. to noon, Swanson Hall, Room 10-12
Are there things you admire about one person's office ethics, yet other working styles that drive you crazy? This one-hour session will enable participants to identify their predominant decision-making style through an interactive "compass" activity where we learn to understand "how" and "why" we work the way we do. Is your department more about co-"blab"-orating or collaborating? No matter the role you play on campus or at home, this is a great way to learn to mine the diverse talents and expertise of your colleagues or family members to build a healthy, productive culture where all learning styles are honored and respected. Come and join the fun! Presenter: Laurie Robinson.
