Relationships with faculty colleagues are valuable and often a source of satisfaction and sense of connection in the academy.
These relationships can further extend our impact and enhance departmental reputations and that of the university as a whole. Occasionally, these relationships are tested in minor and major ways with the potential for significant consequences both professionally and personally.
In this session we will engage in open dialogue with the intention of deepening skills to manage relationships specifically with faculty colleagues. We will identify behaviours in the academic context, interpersonal and systemic, that are damaging to collegial spaces as well as some ways forward. Using scenarios, we will explore a range of approaches which contribute to a healthy work environment.
Please note that the session will be held in person (location tbc), that session occurrence is dependent on registration numbers and that there is limited capacity.
