COMMUNICATING ACROSS GENERATIONS
In today’s workplace, it is likely one will have co-workers of varying ages, from Baby Boomers to Millennials to more recently Generation Z.  This presentation will highlight the historical context, values, and preferred methods of communication, while providing you with the knowledge, tools, and techniques to successfully communicate with people of all generations.

MANAGING UP – Addressing challenging situations
(NEW) Do you find it difficult:  1) to be understood, 2) to be treated professionally and respectfully, 3) to be included in decisions that directly relate to your work, study or research? or 4) to feel that your recommendations to improve your work/study environment are heard and considered?  These and other scenarios that you bring to the workshop will be discussed in breakout groups.  Then, we'll come together to share helpful strategies to improve your relationship with your manager, supervisor, advisor or professor.  To provide context for this workshop, there will be a brief introduction about managing up and definitions of different management styles.

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT CONFLICT - Take the Conflict Awareness Quiz -
There are many myths about conflict.  Some of them relate to our experiences as children witnessing how relationships worked or did not work and how conflict was resolved or not resolved.  These early experiences shaped how we think and feel about conflict and can influence how we handle conflict as adults.  This workshop challenges our understanding about conflict.  Together we will dispell the myths about conflict.
