TIME AND CONFLICT MANAGEMENT SKILLS TO INCREASE RESEARCH PRODUCTIVITY: A CENTER FOR ACADEMIC AND FUTURE FACULTY EXCELLENCE (CAFFE) INSTITUTE

Two common enemies of research productivity are poor time management skills and the mishandling of conflicts and expectation-setting among members of research teams. This one-day institute sponsored by the NSF funded CAFFE combines those themes in a workshop presented by Dr. Greg Lambeth from the University of Illinois and Dr. Antonio Nunez, Associate Dean of the MSU Graduate School. The morning features a discussion of strategies for optimal time management and will cover how perfectionism, procrastination and electronic distractions work against meeting research deadlines and completing large projects. The afternoon will be devoted to learning conflict management and conflict prevention skills, particularly the use of an interest-based approach to set expectations and handle conflicts in the context of research teams. A light lunch will be provided to all participants. (Capacity: 100)
