Working effectively in teams is critical for leaders in geriatric care. This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to gain insights on their and their colleagues’ reactivity and defensiveness. It will offer guidance and tips on how to modulate one’s own reactivity and navigate the reactivity and defensiveness of others.  Learning Objectives: (1) describe behavioral indicators of reactivity in ourselves in others; (2) identify strategies to modulate our own reactivity; and (3) review approaches to foster an environment that mitigates against reactivity and supports positive and effective interactions in team settings.
