In the “Minnesota Nice” culture, many of us stray away from direct conflict. How can we reframe disagreements into joint problem solving? This session will address how to approach difficult conversations with colleagues and how to negotiate in a cooperative manner. Attendees will also learn how to communicate disagreement competently in an intercultural environment. The session will consist of theories being presented alongside individual worksheets to map out a current conflict situation.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
This session will be recorded.
Captioning is provided automatically through Zoom. For information on requesting CART, ASL, or another accommodation, please visit our Registration Policies page
