Creating Successful Relationships With Your Peers

October 28, 2008
TRC Boardroom, Main, CSB
Speaker: Kelly Crue, Director of Residential Life

We had 11 students pre-register, 3 of whom did not attend and 20 walk-ins for a total of 28 people.  The session was from 4:30-5:30.   Kelly was very energetic and animated.  There was some role playing.   Kelly was well prepared and provided handouts.   From the handouts, attendees were able to discover their type of behavior that was most evident.  Kelly covered four different types of behaviors:

  1. Get it done (aggressive, controller, ruler, task focused, tanks, snipers, or know it all)
  2. Get Appreciated (somewhat aggressive, attention seeking, , people focused, entertainer, grenade, sniper, think they know it all)
  3. Get Along (passive, approval seeking, relater: wants to get along, people focused, yes, nothing, maybe).
  4. Get it Right (somewhat passive, analyzer, whiner, perfectionist, no, nothing, task focused).

Most of the evaluations showed that students would have liked more time and that Kelly did rush through the session.  Kelly mentioned after the presentation that this group was very hands on and they definitely could have used more time to really dig deeper.   

Angie Arens and Gwen Schimek served on this committee.
