Navigating Challenging Work Environments
Working on a staff team can be complicated, especially in a Unitarian Universalist congregation where different groups and individuals have varying levels of authority and power. This workshop is for Administrative Professionals who are searching for better ways to have difficult conversations, whether they are with members, visitors, supervisors, staff, the Board, or the congregation as a whole. We will look at ways to develop positive relationships (especially during challenging times), communicate feedback in timely and direct ways, listen to others, advocate for oneself and the role of administrative professionals, and positively adapt to situations that are less than optimal.
