    New resource for supporting conversations in times of change and transition.

    This short 20 minute webcast and supporting guidance focuses on the on-going conversations with academic colleagues dealing with changes to their role priorities over the next few months. These conversations aim to safeguard colleagues’ wellbeing by avoiding overload, facilitate the re-prioritisation process, develop shared clarity, and reassure colleagues about temporarily relinquishing some work to make time for delivering the university’s current priorities.
