?Overcoming fear of conflict? class on Feb. 4, register now

You can register now for the "Overcoming fear of conflict" class, Feb. 4, 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. in EAD 524.

Class description: In an effort to protect ourselves, our work relationships, or the integrity of the group we may find ourselves not giving voice to our thoughts, ideas, and opinions.  We want to preserve the harmony, but is the cost of avoiding conflict too great?  Together we will seek to answer:

  • What keeps me from engaging with others in a transparent and candid way?
  • Is there anything at risk by remaining silent?
  • What do I stand to gain from healthy conflict?
  • How can I work to establish vulnerability-based trust?

The facilitator is Caitlyn Tyler of Alliance Work Partners, the company that also manages our Employee Assistance Program.

Thirty seats are available. Here are directions for how to register; the Course Code is HP15BI.
