Work may be more similar to family than you may realize. You’ve got family who want to argue with you over your decisions. You’ve got family who want to come tell you every time something happens, good or bad. You’ve got family who only need you when there’s an emergency. You’ve got family who must have things “just so.” And, then there’s crazy Uncle Larry, who does and says things you never expect. In order for us to be effective research administrators and leaders we must understand how to work with all of our “family members." Understanding others’ behaviors can help us to be better communicators, better coaches and better resolvers of conflict. Utilizing the “Dominant,” “Influencing,” “Steady” and “Compliance” (DISC) model, this webinar will discuss some different behaviors people exhibit, how to best work with those people and how to set boundaries so more meaningful work gets accomplished, even if crazy Uncle Larry decides to show up unannounced.
- Understand and identify the different behaviors of others
- Discover practical strategies on how to best communicate with colleagues, supervisors and administrators
- Set expectations and boundaries with difficult colleagues
