September 14th, 10-11am Online Zoom
When we make assumptions about how other people expect to be treated, we can easily make a faux pas. Small things that we take for granted, in the culture of another company or another country can turn out to be rude or disrespectful. Clearly this can have a detrimental effect on working relationships. In this presentation and discussion, we avoid providing specific etiquette rules but instead we explore how to keep our antennae alert to what is appropriate for the setting in which we are working. And, once we are sensitized to the norms of others, adjust our online and in person behavior accordingly. This is a 30-minute training designed to get people tuned-in to the main issues and empowered to develop their own range of tools and techniques.

The concept of the “best man” has its origin in medieval Germany when the best man was identified as that trusted individual who had your back, supported you, who would go to battle with you and for you. The BEST Man Forum is designed to connect and meet the needs of the UT men that serve our campuses and institutes. The forum serves as a catalyst to unite UT men system-wide, to learn, network, and contribute to embodiment of the Be One UT Values in performance, behaviors, and relationships.
