Words Matter [online training]
Communication is a skill that can be learned and improved, and it can make a huge difference in how we feel about our jobs and how others feel about us. This training was developed to help employees learn new skills and strengthen the skills they already possess.
Change is inevitable however the current uncertainties at UT have caused many to be concerned about change and unsure how to best respond. As managers you are challenged daily to recognize your own reactions as well as the varied reactions of your employees while continuing to move the department in a positive direction.
Personal challenges occur in all our lives: divorce, family issues, illness, depression, stress, and sometimes serious mental illness. As a manager, you may find that employees with these concerns are distracted or openly distressed at work. This 1.5 hour training will provide information and in-class training on managing these difficult situations that impact the entire workgroup. Format: workshop (presentation and applied group work/discussion)
