Prof. Korosteleva attends a Senior Leaders Workshop (highly recommended!) today focusing on Dealing Constructively with Conflict.
In the context of internal change and transformation and an external societal, economic and, sometimes, political environment, Higher Education institutions and their diverse people will inevitably encounter conflict. How can academic leaders and managers develop and practise the right skills and behaviours to deal constructively with conflict – both within and across faculty boundaries. The workshop draws on Common Purpose’s cross-boundary thought leadership and experiential approach, which includes insights from senior leaders from outside of the university, as well as tools and practices specifically focused on:
• Active listening and effective questioning
• Challenging Assumptions
In doing so, we aim to:
• Better support colleagues with articulating and asserting their rights and responsibilities and equip them to respectively push back and challenge others.
• Embed a positive mindset towards conflict, prioritising common purpose and positive relationships when navigating complex and detailed situations or programmes of work.
• Reduce challenge and conflict: Anticipate areas of challenge from others and mitigate where appropriate.
