Description:It's no surprise that those who don't feel respected at work are less productive. But did you know that merely witnessing an act of incivility, rudeness or disrespect is also correlated with a drop in performance? A recent study showed that witnessing an act of rudeness elicited 25 percent worse performance and 45 percent fewer ideas. In this session, you will learn about the research of respect at work and examine your own habits and your team’s norms.

Description:Of the HR competency domains developed through David Ulrich’s 30 years of research, Paradox Navigator, might be the most interesting. It is identified as the competency most critical for organizational success, yet deploying these skills may not make many friends. This session will explore the types of paradoxes we face as higher ed HR pros and how we can view these difficult situations from a different perspective to help harness this energy for good. HR leaders from three different institutions will share how they navigated through difficult situations with style and grace and what they learned along the way. Additionally, attendees will be able to assess where they are in their own development of the paradox navigator competency and identify ways to grow these skills even further.
