Navigating Difficult Conversations: Communicating Across Difference
Thursday, October 6, 10:00 am to 11:30 am EDT
In this interactive session, Rackham experts in conflict resolution will discuss the ways in which conflict can manifest in our academic and personal spheres and will explore strategies to navigate and address difficult conversations. You will leave with concrete strategies for productive dialogue and clear communication, able to approach difficult conversations with more confidence in the future.
- Participants will be exposed to the idea that conflict is culturally grounded
- Participants will reflect on the ways in which their conflict style affects how they view or experience conflict
- Participants will be able to react to strategies for dialogue and communication
- Participants will be asked to consider how strategies may be used in specific situations
