The workshop is set for 9:30-11 a.m. in Rooms 111/112 at the Student Health Center. 

Carol Fisher, workforce learning and development officer, will present the Labor and Employee Relations workshop.  She’ll discuss things people can do to address problems on campus in a constructive way and how individuals can develop positive solutions, recognize inappropriate behavior and steer and focus communication toward resolution.  She’ll comment about the importance of getting the facts, setting priorities, being specific and the necessity of focusing on the most relevant issues, paying attention, being accountable and being willing to take responsibility for actions.
