This session will help you understand you own behavioral style and how to leverage it for improved communications with others. You’ll also learn why people with different styles may not communicate and behave the same way you do. Thursday, Dec. 7, 1-4 p.m.

Developing Positive Relationships at Work
Positive relationships in high trust organizations improve communication, creativity and collaboration, which in turn leads to greater engagement, better service and growth over time.
