    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Sophomore COR Leadership Program

2nd Session: What a Jerk! Difficult Confrontations and Staying in Relationship

Last Sunday, I attended the second workshop of the COR Leadership Program. The first workshop was on Strengths and this past workshop focused on how individuals can use their strengths and handle conflicts. Here’s a blurb from the website:

Sophomores have experience living with people who are not members of their family, but now they are more independent in their apartment living situations. This workshop will help students to identify, early in the process, the moments where conflict begins and relationships start to break down. Practicing these skills with roommates and during group work will create opportunities to understand how conflict unfolds and develop strategies and skills needed for successful team leadership, group work, successful employment and community relationships.
In this workshop, you will:

  • Know the elements of emotion creation around conflict
  • Identify conflict narrative of villain/victim
  • Rewrite the narrative/perspective to be more accurate
  • Know 2-3 skills for framing/having awkward but important preventative conversations early and often, not shying away from holding friends/colleagues effectively accountable
  • Moving on in relationship with open heart and open mind

The next workshop will be on December 4th from 4:00-5:30 PM and will focus on Resilience. The location had to be changed from Cedar Lounge to BWC 249 as there was a huge turnout during the first workshop. All events will now be in BWC 249, which is more spacious!
