Eventbrite - Conversations That Get Results

The ability to deal skillfully with unmet expectations, communication issues or differing viewpoints is a core capability of both successful organizations and successful individuals. And, the willingness to have these conversations is at the heart of accountability. If you’ve ever avoided having a conversation about unmet expectations - or the conversation you had didn’t lead to the outcome you hoped for - then you will benefit from this training.

This training will provide a step-by-step guide on approaching difficult conversations, and participants will walk away with a script they can use or an upcoming conversation of their choosing.

Kaylea Dunn, a Human Resources Project Specialist at Olsson Associates will lead this workshop.

President's Message

Amy Lanham

The University of Nebraska system is faced with a $49 million reoccurring budget shortfall. The overview of the Budget Response Team Implementation Strategies may be found online. This is a monumental task and one that is not without difficulty. 

Chancellor Green shared in the September Town Hall meeting that in addition to the Budget Response Efficiencies there will be additional Budget Reallocations & Reductions necessary on the campus level. These reallocations and reductions will follow the procedures outlined by the Academic Planning Committee. As the UAAD President, I will be representing you, the member, in this process. More information may be found online. Our General Meetings each month will have a focused time on hearing from the membership, so that your voice can be heard through me as I represent staff to the committee. Again, I encourage you to actively engage in the association and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas.


We promote professional development for employees with administrative or professional / managerial responsibilities.
