Overcoming Academia's Top Workplace Obstacles - Part 3

Apr 19, 2018 (All day)


When asked to name their top workplace challenges, 3,000 academic leaders overwhelmingly said #1 was “working with difficult people,” and #2 was “leading change.” Dr. R. Kent Crookston draws on the wisdom of seasoned department chairs, academic and professional literature, and his own experience as a department head and dean (plus 8 years as director of academic leadership and development at BYU) to offer practical guidance on how to handle these two challenges – specifically how to act when things go wrong, but more importantly how to ensure that things go right. His suggestions will be offered in a three-part series.
