Did you really mean to say that? Microaggressions in Daily Life

Friday, October 31, 2014 / 10:00 – 10:50 a.m.

LRC 213

Have you ever had an encounter in the course of your daily activities when another person said something to you that was hurtful or that made you uncomfortable? Did you wonder if they meant what they said or intended to be rude or hurtful? Did you question whether you were being overly sensitive?
Microaggression often leaves us wondering, like Wile E. Coyote, where the anvil came from. View examples and join a discussion of microaggression in our lives and classrooms.

Disney Secrets – Service Recovery

Friday, October 31, 2014 / 11:00 – 11:50 a.m.

JHG 337

At a time when the need to retain each and every student is crucial, providing quality service to our students is the key. One service blunder could mean the difference in a student’s attitude to continue with us or move to a different community college just a few miles down the road. However, we are all human and make mistakes. This is when service blunders occur. The key to overcoming this mistake is engaging in effective service recovery.  Join Felecia Johnson and Dr. Beth Norton, who attended Disney’s approach to quality service training, to find out how Disney goes from “mistake” to “magical” in their service recovery approach.  You can even wear a costume of your favorite Disney character since it is Halloween!

Presented by: Dr. Beth Norton and Felecia Johnson
