Raising a Resilient Scientist Series 4 – Feb 8
February 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST
“Difficult Conversations, Conflict, and Feedback”
Workshops and Trainings for Extramural Faculty
Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) has created workshops and other training activities to support extramural principal investigators (PIs) and staff as they manage and lead biomedical research groups.
If you are an intramural PI, please see your series here.
Raising a Resilient Scientist Series: Five units, covering communication, resilience, inclusivity, conflict and feedback, and trainee wellbeing, will help PIs and staff support your biomedical trainees. Each unit will explore ways to manage common challenges in research groups by means of a webinar (to watch in real-time or via a recording) and facilitated small groups designed to build a community to improve training across the US. You are encouraged to attend the entire series, but each unit may be attended as a stand-alone.

This unit will build a framework for having difficult conversations, including providing effective feedback. It will examine how we decide to engage in difficult conversations and provide strategies and tools for effective communication under challenging circumstances. Specific issues, such as differences in style or culture, appropriate boundaries, and managing challenging interactions will be reviewed.
