Share, Grow, Innovate
Even among altruistic academics there lurks “stinky cheese” — the uncomfortable exchange in the mailroom, the furtive wince at the coffee pot, the false smile on the elevator. Working with other people, whether it is in a factory or a marbled administrative building, brings inevitable conflict. As Sartre said, “Hell is other people.” You might be a director or chair whose job it is to manage conflict among staff. Or you might be a staff or faculty member looking for some strategies to survive the ongoing acrimony. Whatever your role, everyone benefits from knowing how to “cut the cheese” and diffuse animosity.
This webinar will present effective and memorable strategies for “cutting the cheese.” Participants will share action plans for addressing specific conflicts at work. They will also be encouraged to think in terms of what isn’t working, what is working, and what might work better in the future.
