Co-sponsored by The Graduate School and Counseling & Psychological Services Center


February 3, 2015
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 
Chouteau Room, Allen Chapman Student Union 

Understanding interpersonal styles and team building skills are beneficial in the formation of master’s and dissertation committees. Team building skills are also transferable to the workplace after graduation and may aid in building a successful career. Participants will complete an interpersonal style assessment; information obtained from this assessment will be applied during the workshop. (Students who have completed an interpersonal style assessment may not need to attend the first 30 minutes of the workshop, but do need to bring the results of the test with them and contact the Counseling Center (631-2200) for approval). Dean Haggerty will discuss committee composition related to academic expertise, building teams, and understanding how interpersonal styles relate to the development of effective teams.

The purpose of this workshop is to:

  • identify my particular interpersonal style,
  • help me gain a better understanding of others and myself,
  • help me predict how others and I might respond in a given situation,
  • learn to apply this knowledge to building a thesis or dissertation committee, and
  • learn applications of interpersonal styles & team building in the workplace.

Class size is limited; please RSVP to reserve your seat.
