People are complicated! And in any work environment, including academia, the relationships you have with your colleagues can be complex. In fact, they may be especially complex in a university setting because faculty can simultaneously be serving as a supervisor/advisor/mentor/principal investigator and each of those roles has its own expectations and demands. Likewise, a graduate student can be both an employee/trainee/mentee AND a supervisor/mentor of others. In this brief workshop we will explore these many varied roles and discuss basic techniques for effectively handling the complexity of managing “up” and managing “down”. Both are challenging but both are very learnable skills!
