Professional Development Workshop: 'Managing the Polarities of Organizational Change' - April 24

Please join us for the professional development workshop "Managing the Polarities of Organizational Change," presented by Melissa Miszkiewicz, director of RITE strategic partnerships, on Tuesday, April 24, from 12:15 to 2:15 p.m. in Butler Library 181B.

As a college or university changes, issues and systems can quickly increase in complexity, which can lead to change resistance. Many times these issues or systems cannot be "fixed" using traditional problem-solving techniques to identify an "either/or" solution, because they are polarities, dilemmas, or paradoxes that have two or more right answers that are interdependent. Participants in this session will learn how to identify and manage the polarities caused by organizational change. Specifically, participants will learn how to distinguish a manageable polarity from a solvable problem, identify polarities, select a polarity, and map the polarity to a long-term resolution. 

Lunch will be provided, sponsored by the Buffalo State chapter of United University Professions (UUP). Please register through the Workshop Registration System.
