WorkLife and Wellness Workshop

“Effective Communication and Conflict Resolution”

Monday, December 4, 2017
Time: 12 pm – 1 pm
Location: Glassrock Building, Room 7106

Presenter:  Katherine Greenwood JD, PhD, Director, UC Davis Ombuds Office

Does thinking about "conflict" give you sweaty palms and a tense jaw?  Many of us consider conflict to be negative, yet conflict is actually natural, normal, and neutral.  Conflict can actually encourage positive change and growth.  If your work or home life ever involves conflict (and whose life doesn't?), this brown bag is for you!

 

The following will be addressed:

  • Clues to recognize conflict before it escalates
  • Strategies for improving your conflict competence
  • Using body language and other non-verbal communication effectively

To RSVP for this workshop contact Marina Podoreanu at mpodoreanu@ucdavis.edu or 916-734-2760.
