Energizer #1: Grace!
Leadership Retreat Update: We have a possible location! What do you guys think of the Silver Star Hut up La Plata Canyon?
Preparing for Cathy's workshop on conflict resolution
Here is Cathy's request. Please write your scenario on THIS DOCUMENT so I can just share that with Cathy.
"If it works, it would be fantastic for the Leadership Class students to do the following assignment before I facilitate the Conflict Resolution Workshop on Tuesday morning. I think the workshop will be more genuine and meaningful if the scenarios we use come from the students, rather than me.
Ask each student to write a scenario that describes a conflict involving 2 or 3 people. It can be a real conflict from their lives, or something they make up. Conflicts can take place between friends, family members, students and teachers, employees and employers, sports teams, club members, etc. Do not present a resolution for the scenario. The author of each scenario will be kept anonymous.
The scenario should be short - maybe 2-4 sentences. Here's an example:
"You just received your mid-term grades, and they are well below what your perfectionist parents expect. Because of this, they have taken away your phone AND your car for one month. You are pissed, because you are taking really hard classes this semester and have been working really hard."
1. Debrief your feedback on my class from last Thursday's survey
2. Lesson: Giving and Receiving Feedback Effectively
3. Personal Application/Reflection: In your Reflection Journal, reflect on your ability to give and receive feedback effectively. What specific strategies outlined in our reading are you strong in? Which ones do you need to improve on?
