Nudging other people and seeing the actual result can warn the heart! Theory and practice suggest that chairs can influence peers, faculty and deans for the benefit of all involved. A collaborative mindset can  launch a discussion that results in a greater sense of common acceptance based upon valuing other's roles. You can make it all go the right way.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss and use three approaches to gaining acceptance 
  • Identify specific situations to apply influencing behaviors
  • Value the use of metrics to strengthen your framework
