Combining practical exercises and breakout groups, this training teaches participants how to overcome self-limiting beliefs as well as how to exercise and elevate their voice in the workplace.
Cultivating High Quality Connections
Are your relationships as strong as they could be? For many of us, the answer is "no". But not only are strong social connections the greatest indicator of psychological resilience, relationships are a stronger predictor of physical health than physical inactivity, obesity and smoking. Unfortunately, it’s easy for our relationships - both personal and professional - to become strained. But high-quality connections largely contribute to flourishing workplaces. In this 1- or 2-hour, interactive training, participants will learn science-based strategies for strengthening relationships -- so they can bolster their sense of connection and create more cohesive teams in the workplace.

This workshop can be customized to fit any length of time from 1-hour to a half-day.

This 1-2 hour, interactive workshop teaches participants scientific insight and the practical application of simple techniques designed to enhance employees' energy and engagement so they can flourish personally and professionally.
