Presentation: "Things people do that we wish they wouldn't."

Time: Thursday 17:15 - 18:15

Location: Henry Moore Room

Abstract: This workshop will investigate the "bad" things that people do (e.g. Lie!), and then discuss solutions, strategies or processes to address the issue. We will start with a short presentation on some of the standard strategies for dealing with “bad” behaviour. We will have a short brainstorm to identify a backlog of “bad” behaviours to discuss. A goldfish bowl will then discuss each “bad” behaviour, and the strategies that participants have used successfully and unsuccessfully to address the situation.
