Difficult Conversations, Conflict, and Feedback NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education: Raising a Resilient Scientist

Event date: 2/8/2023 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM iCal Export

Registration Link:
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.

The NIH OITE is pleased to offer the RAISING A RESILIENT SCIENTIST series for faculty, staff scientists, and administrators who mentor students and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical, behavioral, and social sciences. A variety of topics will be covered with a specific focus on communication and shared problem-solving to help trainees deal with the inevitable setbacks experienced in high knowledge environments. The goal of the Raising a Resilient Scientist series is to promote the mental health and well-being of the academic research community by supporting faculty and administrators to develop self-management, relationship-management, and mentoring skills. There will be five units in the series and each unit will consist of a 75-minute lecture followed by a 1-hour facilitated discussion with peers.

There is no charge for participation, but advanced registration is required. For more information, and to register, please visit our webpage.  Participation in the entire series is recommended but is not required.
