Finding Flow: Motivation in Self and Teams

Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022

Time: 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM

Stream: Leading

Navigating the return to campus will require adaptation and self-awareness from each of us. In this session, we will be able to identify how we can motivate ourselves to create a strong culture of support in the transition.


“That didn’t feel right…” 5 ways to support co-workers, and yourself, when personal boundaries are crossed

Date: Thursday, February 10, 2022

Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Stream: Individual

Timed to coincide with the UM Sexual Violence Awareness Week, taking place February 7 to 11, this session will talk about something that is rarely openly discussed – that space between personal and professional interactions at the workplace. Participants will come away with practical tools on supporting others and themselves; and will also hold a stronger knowledge of UM policies and resources available to them in this area.

“It can be really disorienting when our personal sense of space and safety are crossed in our workplace.  Maybe a colleague tells a sexist joke, a stranger zoom bombed your session, or you receive a text that wasn’t okay for the other person to send – these can feel really isolating, risky and tricky to negotiate in a professional setting where your success depends on ongoing positive relationships,” says session facilitator, Bre Woligroski.

“This session will provide practical skills for attendees on how to manage these situations, as well as information on campus options and resources.”

Facilitators wanted

The three-day THRIVE conference will be back in 2022. If you are interested in facilitating a session, please reach out to HR [at] umanitoba [dot] ca. The dates will be finalized shortly.
