In the fast-paced workplace, who has the time to deal with interpersonal relationships?

And yet, miscommunication & misunderstandings cost money, decrease motivation and impact performance.

Slow down to gain time. Communicating clearly and intentionally is key to relationships. Those relationships are the heart of healthy, effective teams. By cultivating communication and empathy, leaders and team members will stay motivated and thrive while reaching their goals.

This workshop will be interactive, stimulating, fun and thought provoking. Leaders will go back to their teams with doable, practical and valuable tools in their pocket for boosting relationships, team spirit and productivity. When people are appreciated for what they bring, they’ll go above and beyond.
