Have you ever wondered about strategies you can use to build strong relationships with your supervisor? Have you thought about ways of avoiding conflicts or managing them? If that is the case, this is the workshop for you! We will be describing important strategies for developing strong working relationships that support progress through your graduate program and for addressing and managing conflict. We will also share some scenarios for small group work that are derived from actual supervisor-student situations. There will be ample time for discussion.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify key strategies to build effective relationships with supervisors
  • Consider factors that potentially contribute to trust and reciprocity in relationships with supervisors
  • Focus on making timely progress through your program and meeting milestones
  • Consider factors that can disrupt effective supervisory relationships
  • Appreciate the importance of clear boundaries in supervisory relationships
  • Problem-solve ways to manage conflict
  • Find sources of assistance in the event of intractable conflict.
