“But I Thought You Were . . .” Developing Collaborative Skills 1

Prepared and Presented by Sherry Wong, M.A. and Sylvie Taylor, Ph.D.

Open to ALL AULA Students and Staff:

This Series is a community service of the MAP Applied Community Psychology Specialization

Working effectively in collaborative teams is a vital skill for the 21st century professional. Collaborative skills do not come naturally to most of us – collaborations are often sabotaged by our desire for control, recognition or simply wanting to have things our way. Lack of accountability, failure to follow-through, and ineffective communication are also factors that can compromise our collaborative efforts.
This workshop will focus on the essential skills necessary for effective collaborations: communication, goal-setting, and accountability. Strategies for establishing collaborative project expectations, timelines, and mutual accountability for the completion of work products will be addressed.
Part 2 of this workshop series will focus on trouble-shooting problematic collaborations.

REPARATIONS: AMERICAN DENIAL & RESPONSIBILITY

Introduction to social dreaming
and the theme of Reparations.

This AULA community event builds upon the moving reading in the AULA library last winter of the article “A Case for Reparations” by TaNehisi Coates examining the “compounding debt” of American denial of the impact of slavery and institutionalized racism.

Co-sponsored by the MA in Psychology Departments’ Child Studies, Spiritual and Depth Psychology, and Trauma Studies Specializations, and the AULA Library.

For more information contact: Matthew Silverstein, PhD at msilverstein@antioch.edu

“I Can’t Stand Working in Groups!” Developing Collaborative Skills 2

Prepared and Presented by Sherry Wong, M.A. and Sylvie Taylor, Ph.D.

Open to All AULA Students and Staff

This Series is a community service of the MAP Applied Community Psychology Specialization

Working effectively in collaborative teams is a vital skill for the 21st century professional. Collaborative skills do not come naturally to most of us – collaborations are often sabotaged by our desire for control, recognition or simply wanting to have things our way. Lack of accountability, failure to follow-through, and ineffective communication are also factors that can compromise our collaborative efforts.
This workshop will focus on troubleshooting problematic collaborations. Strategies for direct communication and accountability (of self and others) will be discussed. Special attention will be paid to taking responsibility for one’s own lack of accountability and how to effectively communicate with collaborative partners when they are not meeting agreed upon expectations.
