Chapter Obligations- Campus
  • The Scribe should ensure completion of all
    required campus reporting. Many educational
    institutions require documentation from campus
    sponsored or recognized organizations. Failure to
    meet these requirements may prevent your
    organization from receiving campus funds or
    reserving classrooms for meetings and official
    functions. Contact your local campus activities
    office for more information.

CORE
35
Essential Records
  • Member Roll Book
  • Chapter Meeting Minutes
  • Regular Meetings
  • Special Meetings (ie Initiation, Planning
    Meeting)
  • Archives

The importance of properly kept records cannot
be overemphasized. They constitute a documentary
history of the chapter, and stand as a permanent
record of each Scribes tenure in office.

Excellence is an art won by training and
habituation. We do not act rightly because we
have virtue or excellence, but rather we have
those because we have acted rightly. We are what
we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act
but a habit. - Aristotle

Conflict Resolution
57
Conflict ResolutionAdvanced Interpersonal
Communications
58
We are all of two minds about conflict. We say
that conflict is natural, inevitable, necessary
and normal, and the problem is not the existence
of conflict but how to handle it.
59
What is your Purpose?
  • When you are in conflict with someone on your
    team (or in your family) what is your true
    purpose for dealing with them. What do you
    honestly hope to achieve what outcome are you
    really trying to produce?

60
To deal effectively with conflict
  • Diagnose and understand the nature of the
    conflict
  • Select appropriate course of action, behaviors
    and communication style
  • Stay aware of personal feelings /emotions /
    filters

61
Why to we have conflict?
Diversity
Interdependence
CONFLICT
62
The Four Fundamental Issues of Conflict
  • Facts what is going on
  • Goals what we are trying to achieve
  • Methods how we will reach the goals
  • Values the ethics of the situation (fairness,
    justice, morals)

Conflict is increased and prolonged when
contending parties are unclear as to the nature
of the issues they are in disagreement over

Challenging Conversations
PAGE 10
  • How to handle difficult, emotional, stressful,
    angry and confrontational conversations

65
Three Main Causes
  • Arguing about the facts
  • Truth / Intentions / Blame
  • Ignoring emotions
  • Concern about impact
  • Personal / professional

66
The Truth Assumptions
  • I am right
  • You are wrong
  • I know the facts
  • You are mistaken
  • I understand
  • You are confused

67
The Truth Assumptions
  • They are the problem!
  • Rude
  • Arrogant
  • Manipulative
  • Controlling
  • Naïve
  • Irrational

68
The Truth Assumptions
We live in the same world Rules / beliefs /
attitudes / values / experiences
69
How do we fix the truth assumptions?
PAGE 12
  • Admit you are not always right
  • Realize they are not always the problem
  • Check your information
  • Examine your world
  • Explore their world

70
I know why you did that
  • I assume from your actions that I clearly
    understand your intentions

71
Big problems with the intentions assumptions
  • We really think we understand people
  • We assume intentions by impact
  • We assume the worst
  • Bad intentions bad person
  • Bad assumptions lead to selective perception

72
Three Key Questions
  • What really happened?
  • How did it really make me feel?
  • What do I guess they intended?

Go from accusingto explaining I - statements
73
Scott, when you come in late to our team
meetings, I feel frustrated because it has a
serious impact on keeping the agenda on track.
I feel like you dont want to be in the
meetings, and that confuses me because I know you
are excited about the project. Could you help me
understand what has been keeping you from making
it on time?
74
Five Levels of Confrontation
PAGE 17
Demand for Action
Understanding
75
Reflection
  • Relationship is top priority
  • Sincere effort to understand
  • Active listening

I can see that you are upset and you feel like
there is a lot of pressure on you. You mentioned
that you are working on eight different projects,
including the annual budget. That is very
challenging. I can understand that you feel
stressed.
76
I - statements
  • Relationship is important
  • Build understanding by sharing
  • Non-judgmental

I feel uncomfortable when you throw files down
on my desk and raise your voice.
77
Diplomatic Disagreement
  • Reach understanding in a gentle way
  • Mutual understanding
  • Disagree agreeably
  • Preserve relationship in conflict

I appreciate your position and realize you feel
it will improve productivity. I believe we
should wait until we get the new computers and
make sure the software is compatible.
78
Gentle Confrontation
  • Build relationship / change behavior
  • Validate / direct
  • Non-threatening tentative
  • Show concern and understanding

Combination of - Reflection - Validation of
worth / importance - I-statements -
Indication of consequences
79
I know you think the Tampa project is a waste of
time. I understand your feelings and appreciate
that it may not seem like a top priority to you.
Tom, you are one of the key people on our team,
however, I feel frustrated when you agree to
deadlines on that project and then turn work in
days late. I am trying to manage all of our
projects well, and this situation is causing me a
lot of stress and extra work. If you continue to
delay the project, it may mean that we dont meet
our quarterly goals and we will all lose our
chance for bonus.
80
Firm Confrontation
  • Focus on changing behavior
  • Maintain / preserve relationship
  • Desire a firm resolution
  • Clear consequences for noncompliance

Same as Gentle Confrontation plus
This cannot continue. In the future, I would
appreciate it if you would please honor the
deadlines you commit to. It is very important to
all of us.

How developed is your chapter?
Chapters tend to progress through 4 distinct
phases as they develop and improve how work gets
done and how members interact. Chapters may
bounce between different levels.
Creativity Consistency Conflict Creation
113
Purpose of a Lock-in
What do you want to accomplish?
114
1. Problems and Concerns
  • Discuss problems and concerns. Air differences.
  • Activities that involve members in discussing
    problems are much more effective than preaching
    or prodding. Encourage all members to volunteer
    ideas. Anonymity may be useful, i.e., placing
    ideas in a hat, but if you continually need
    anonymity in order to bring up problems, you may
    want to focus on building trust within your
    chapter. The goal is to be able to bring up
    problems openly and honestly.
  • Ideas listed below. What are other activities for
    discussing problems and concerns?

115
2. Goals
  • Comments Simply involving members in setting
    goals is a significant motivator. When people
    feel ownership in the vision, they are much more
    likely to participate in working toward that
    vision. In all activities, focus on balancing
    participation. Help bring out ideas from all
    participants. Prioritize goals.
  • What has worked for your chapter?

116
3. Planning
  • Sample resources included in appendix
  • Chapter Planning- samples of processes
  • Chapter Assessment and Pre Planning Worksheet
  • Chapter Master Schedule Tool
  • Action Plan

117
4. Energize and Unite!
  • Create an environment that will encourage unity,
  • understanding, teamwork, and brotherhood.
  • Be sure to start and end with a fun or positive
    activity- Starting will create a positive tone
    and high energy throughout.

180
Top 10 Rules of Rush
  • Rush perspectives better than yourself. The most
    important person in the Fraternity is the next
    one we recruit.
  • The most important thing in Rush is the
    one-on-one effort a Brother makes to get to know
    a prospective member.
  • If we sell something, we must be willing to
    deliver it. We cannot say that we are the best,
    then be something less.
  • All of our weaknesses are opportunities for
    improvement. Every Rushee could be the person to
    make it happen.
  • The way we look means a great deal.
  • The way we act means even more.
  • There is no perfect prospective member. We must
    look for winning potential, not finished
    products. Do not expect every person who joins
    to be your best friendit is just not realistic.
  • We must work harder, smarter and more creatively
    than all of the other fraternities to be number
    one! Our craziest ideas can often be what makes
    us stand out in a positive light.
  • Always say positive things. Do not make
    derogatory comments about anything, especially
    other fraternities!
  • We can never sign a perspective until they
    understand what being a member means. This way,
    they will not quit when they experience the real
    thing.
