Tools & Resources
Difficult behavior can significantly lower a group's productivity or interfere with an individual's ability to do their best work. Keep track of your professional relationships, and take action when there are problems. It's tempting to just avoid the person or situation, but that's rarely effective. Awareness, Prevention, and Early Intervention can help you manage small problems before they become overwhelming.
Check out these tools to help you do your best and make positive and productive connections with your colleagues: Difficult Behavior, Difficult Conversations, Advising and Mentoring, Outstanding Advising & H.E.A.L.T.H., and gradvising.umn.edu.
