Manager Chats

Manager Chats is a quarterly forum—especially for mangers of Yale staff—designed to facilitate on-going growth and development.

Covering a range of relevant and just-in-time topics, managers of Yale staff come together in these facilitated meetings to:

  • Broaden their knowledge and perspective
  • Share and discuss best practices
  • Collaborate on solutions to common challenges

Manager Chats meetings are typically held from Noon - 1:30 p.m. Feel free to bring your lunch. We’ll provide sweet treats!

March 3rd, Leading through Change
This impactful session with our colleagues from InspireCorps leads us through a presentation and discussion of how the experience of change and uncertainty launches us into a series of complex thoughts and emotions. We learned a framework for understanding the different emotional stages we pass through and how best to navigate them for yourself and for those you lead.
