Making Change Happen

The Elephant in the Room: How to Talk About Difficult Issues that Impede our Lives and our Work

12-1:30 – pm February 7th KC2266 We all can think of a time when unresolved conflict has had a negative impact on our mood, our productivity, and our overall emotional health. This workshop will introduce some new ways of thinking about conflict and some practical tools for talking about the hard issues that affect our lives and our work. Facilitated by Jonathan Hodge, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Assistant Chair in the Mathematics Department at GVSU.

Why What He Thought She Said isn’t So! And what you can do about it…

Noon – 1:00 pm March13th KC2259 March 20th 302EDEV Join Alison Brown, CEO of Encompass, to look at effective ways to communicate and overcome work challenges due to gender differences and behavioral approaches. This lively presentation invites you to consider the many ways in which men and women differ in approaching their work; from communication, to behaviors that engage or disengage others.

“What’s the sense of a healthy body if you’re losing your mind?” -Jeff Marcinkowski, Assistant Maintenance Supervisor

Communicating with Your Teenager

Noon – 1:00 pm April 10th KC2259 April 18th DEV302E Communicating with your teenager can be challenging, to say the least. Although most teens seem quite adept at communicating with other teenagers, talking to parents can be a somewhat different experience. For parents of teenagers, learning a little about teens can help communication be less frustrating and allow open discussions about important issues affecting the family. Dr. Matthew Clark will provide tips that can help parents more effectively talk with their teens. Key areas of the discussion will be listening techniques, paying attention to language, respect, compromise, concern, reading nonverbal cues, appreciation, clarification, and consistency.To hear more about Dr. Clark, visit WZZM13, Take Five.
