Our work worlds have shifted. The past few years have been hard - whether we witnessed pain or experienced it first-hand. Individuals and teams are craving connection, while hybrid work models and unrelenting demands drive us apart. Conversations are often transactional and superficial at best. How do we address this need to connect collectively? Come learn and explore practical tools and solutions in an interactive audience session with group breakouts, polling, and shared strategizing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the science behind engagement and retention and how it applies today.
  • Apply a personal support strategy that strengthens your connections at work.
  • Identify 3-5 tools that support connection in virtual environments.
  • Connect, strategize and identify practical support tools to apply in your environment.
