Challenging conversations are high-risk, sometimes emotional discussions between individuals with differing opinions. This workshop will help graduate students recognize when challenging conversations are happening, or need to happen, and prepare them with strategies to navigate them productively. This includes being able to give both positive and negative feedback as well as receive it from colleagues and advisors, in order to effectively meet personal, academic, and professional goals.
This interactive workshop, facilitated by COE CommLab Fellows, will offer background on navigating challenging conversations, and provide time for participants to work together in smaller groups to analyze, assess, process, and practice frequently encountered scenarios. There will also be time for participants to discuss their own challenging conversations and make new strategies.
