Greg Eiselein, Donnelly Professor of English, University Distinguished Teaching Scholar and director of K-State First, will present as part of the What Matters to Me and Why lecture series Thursday, March 26. The presentation will take place in Town Hall, Leadership Studies Building, from noon to 1 p.m.
This presentation is about the joys (and struggles, but mostly joys) of working with others. We know that learning is social and that social learning environments work better than isolated or individualistic ones. In what ways is the same true of work? If our best work is done collaboratively, how do we support and coordinate with each other, and just plain get along in the ways most likely to achieve collective goals?
One of the keys may be sharing what matters most to us and why, thinking through the principles that guide and motivate our work and writing out the unwritten rules of a #modeloffice.
A free box lunch will be provided starting at 11:45 a.m., and an RSVP is requested by March 24. Visit the website to read a full event description and sign up. If you are unable to attend, a Zoom link is available. See who’s going on Facebook.
This informal lunchtime series supports K-State’s Principles of Community by encouraging reflection on matters of personal values, beliefs, and motivations in order to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who serve and shape the University. This event is sponsored by the Staley School of Leadership Studies, and supported by an interdisciplinary, cross-campus planning team.
