HR Welcomes New Dispute Resolution Officer, Kim Sullivan
The Conflict Management Office welcomes a new Dispute Resolution Officer, Kim Sullivan. She is a licensed attorney in both Massachusetts and Texas. In addition to servicing the university grievance policy, Kim offers mediation, coaching, and training to the entire staff population. She welcomes early contact with the office to work preemptively towards more effective communication and relationship repair at the earliest signs of discord or conflict. As a neutral third party, she assists departments and individual employees articulate clear performance expectations and plans, offers informal consultations prior to corrective actions, advises where personality clashes exist, and delivers team-building and management best practices training. Initial consultations are kept confidential.
For more information about Kim, see her full bio.
This summer would be a great time to dive into Lynda.com for some online training. Through high-quality videos, this online course library provides instruction on the use of software and training on a wide range of tools and disciplines.
