A change for the better: A new approach to change conversations
It’s not what you say—it’s how you say it.
That’s the gist of the idea behind motivational interviewing.
The idea is to employ collaborative and non-confrontational communication techniques that encourage faculty to change behaviors by helping them recognize the value of change and by instilling confidence in their ability to successfully realize it.
Research shows that it works even when individuals are initially resistant to change, and colleges and universities are increasingly adopting the approach to guide faculty to better practices.
You, too, can learn how to utilize elements of this approach to improve communication, facilitate behavior change, and negotiate difficult conversations in Using Motivational Interviewing to Engage & Motivate Faculty.
In this Magna Online Seminar discover that, despite the clinical name, motivational interviewing is an accessible way to improve all kinds of communication with faculty.
Motivational interviewing has been an effective tool in clinical psychology for years, but its application in the higher education environment is relatively new.
