From team member to senior leader, how to be the person you want to work with

The strength of your organization or team is directly related to the strength of the individual relationships within. Strong relationships fuel greater collaboration, help people navigate through change, increase fulfillment and reduce conflict. Relationships are built, re-built, and nurtured through conversation. While many have focused on transmitting information through the development of speech, debate and presentation skills, most have not spent equal effort learning how to listen in a way that values people, actualizes care, and leads to greater discernment. Learning this skill, as a leader or team member, has the power to transform relationships and organizations, one connection at a time.

    I went into the course with optimism and with an open mind.  I had preconceived ideas that it would benefit me, but only incrementally; In reality the course was amazingly impactful … far exceeded my expectations.
