Successful U.: Practicing for Success
Jamestown, N.Y.— On January 20, students from the fall SuccessfulU group participated in their second success seminar. The seminar focused on strategies for problem solving and conflict resolution. To open the session, President Conklin addressed the group explaining why problem solving and conflict resolution are essential skills for todays' students and employees to have. Students were then split into teams and worked through a problem solving strategy and mock situations with their success coach.
JBC student, Todd Cervantes, provided a few words regarding the seminar..."It was nice to sit in a very relaxed environment and talk about conflict resolution. It made it very easy to soak in the information and process it. On the drive home yesterday, I was even thinking about how I could handle different situations. After reflecting on what Mr. Conklin spoke about, I was thinking of ways to become more of a problem solver than a complainer. This was my first SuccessfulU seminar, and I very much enjoyed it. I felt comfortable talking about Conflict Resolution because of what we had spoken about in Management class last term. It's nice to come here and not have to be buried in a book or a strict note taking exercise. I look forward to the next seminar."
Instructor Todd Melquist also provided a few words about the seminar. "The most recent SuccessfulU event dealing with Problem Solving and Conflict Resolution went very well. As instructors here at the college, these events allow us to add valuable lessons beyond the classroom. The information provided will help students academically, personally, and professionally. All success coaches commented on how well the discussions went in their respective groups, and we believe all participants walked away with tools for effective problem solving and conflict resolution. These events build on the great culture here at JBC and provide students that extra edge when they head into the workforce."
