The Best, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Challenging the Process

February 27, 2008, 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., Gorecki 120, CSB

Number of Attendees:  21

Presenters:  John Doman, Transportation, and Patricia Cespedes-Schueller, Director of CSB Campus Ministry

Summary:  Patricia started the presentation by examining the following quotation: 

Leaders search for opportunities to change the status quo.  They look for innovated ways to improve the organization.  In doing so, they experiment and take risks.  And because that taking risks involve mistakes and failures, they accept the inevitable disappointment as learning opportunities. 

John and Patricia shared personal stories where they challenged the process.  The group discussed methods for challenging the process in their own environments at CSB/SJU. 

Patricia shared the use of Benedictine values in challenging the process and John ended the session with a survey as to what extent participants engaged in “challenging” actions. 

Participants appeared to have a better understanding of what challenging the process means and left with a couple of concrete examples of how to challenge effectively in the work place.
