New Dates for 2020 Difficult Conversations Training

Do you avoid difficult conversations because you're not sure how to have them or are worried they may backfire? Do you struggle to intervene when you see a difficult situation in action?

UCAR's Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) is holding regular Bystander Intervention and Difficult Conversations training. We discuss the barriers that prevent us from intervening in difficult situations. You will learn skills and techniques to intervene in difficult workplace situations. We provide you with a model for difficult conversations and you can practice effective ways to have these conversations with supervisors, peers, and direct reports. No prior experience is needed for this stand-alone session. We welcome people from all job categories and levels of the organization. 

To sign up, please visit Workday. You can also enroll by clicking on the Learning icon on your Workday homepage. Once you click on this icon, on the right side of the screen under Learn - click Topics - then click Culture and Diversity. Next click on the orange “enroll” button on the bottom left of your screen and choose the time and location.
