UCard

| No Comments

As the building access pilot program has been rolled out, several building UCard sensors have been replaced with proximity sensors rather than a card swipe device. If you have small orange letters and numbers on the back of your UCard, it will work with proximity sensors. To obtain an updated card, visit a UCard office. If you need your access adjusted as an ASR staff member, contact the access coordinator for your building.

ASR fun calendar

| No Comments

ASR has created a google calendar for social or fun events that ASR staff may be interested in. To view the calendar, search for ASRfun. Adding events to the calendar works much like adding a conference room - make an appointment on your own calendar and invite ASRfun@umn.edu as a guest. If you see an event on the calendar that you would like to join, contact the meeting host.

Please be considerate of your fellow ASR members and remember to cancel or update events if needed. Also, events should be for learning or social events; not for fundraising or solicitations.

Any questions? Email ASRfun@umn.edu. Thanks!

Work Tip: the SCARF model

| No Comments

Status-Certainty-Autonomy-Relatedness-Fairness (SCARF) is the brain-based model for collaborating with and influencing others. Understanding this can help individuals and organizations function more effectively by reducing conflicts and increasing engagement.

The model was developed by leadership coach and author David Rock, who published an article about SCARF in the NeuroLeadership Journal. Rosie Barry, the assistant director of Organizational Effectiveness here at the University, summarized Rock's findings in a recent presentation, "Building Resilience in the Workplace."

Disposing of your mobile device

| No Comments

Not sure how to dispose of your mobile device? The June edition of "OUCH!" explains how to do so safely. Even though we live in an age of intense information sharing, you may not realize just how much personal and sensitive information you have on your cell phone. Not disposing of it properly could allow someone to access that information.
