Developing Communication and Conflict Management Skills for Optimal Productivity

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 and in classroom situations. The strategy showcased for both setting expectations and managing conflicts is an interest-based approach of negotiation. Includes morning coffee and a working lunch at noon.
