The Art of Effective Meetings
January 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:50 pm
The Art of Effective Meetings. Ever suffered through an excruciating departmental meeting? Ever wonder why some committee conversations seem to get stuck, or your research group can’t seem to get organized? Have you struggled with “bad actors,” such as colleagues who interrupt others, or always seem to be engaged in a distracting side conversation? Join us in this workshop, where we’ll explore a few foundational concepts of interpersonal dynamics that drive our behavior in groups – as well as the influence of social identity on these dynamics – and then get into the nuts-and-bolts of some practical tips that will increase the productivity of your meetings, improve cohesion among your team, and propel your work forward.
