Crucial Conversations

Crucial conversations take place in every organization every day.  These are conversations where there are high stakes, differences of opinion, and strong emotion.  These are conversations around work quality, time management, productivity, performance, customer satisfaction, sensitive issues, conflict, or a strained relationship.  Often, individuals avoid having these conversations or they do not handle them well.  Either way, this leads to not getting the results you want. Whenever you’re not getting the results you’re looking for, it’s likely a crucial conversation is keeping you stuck… Crucial Conversations® is a program that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of an organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you will begin to surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on the decisions with unity and commitment in a respectful way. This program is offered in two-hour segments over eight consecutive weeks. Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. beginning February 6, and continuing through March 26, 2020.  Skills learned each week build upon skills from the previous week, so it is critical that registered participants are able to attend all sessions.  The date listed within the Events Calendar is the first of eight sessions.  When you register, you are registering for the entire eight sessions.

Rethinking the Disability Paradigm: The University Community Working Together

What do you need to know about disabled students and co-workers? This workshop will answer this question and many more that you didn’t know to ask! What does able-bodied privilege mean? How does it manifest in the workplace? Our socially mediated and culturally affirmed beliefs influence how we think and engage with each other. These largely unconscious beliefs can lead to biases and micro-aggressions that impact others in ways that we may not be aware of or intend. We want you to gain an awareness of your own beliefs and how they influence your actions and the language you use. This is a collective responsibility we all share. This workshop is led by campus partners within the Office of Disability Services and the Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion, and Resolution Services.
