Research shows us that strong professional and personal friendships are vital to health and wellbeing. Yet in the rush of our daily lives, maintaining and establishing friendships can sometimes be neglected.
Nurturing our networks is the only way to keep them healthy. Most of us were not taught these critical skills as kids. As adults, we can use the science of friendship to strengthen our connections.
In this workshop, educator and coach Christine Brooks utilizes tools such as emotional intelligence, friendship mechanics, and relational styles to enable you to enhance your relationships. Christine also teaches the process of befriending—the skills needed to make and maintain friends at work and in life. Walk away with your own nurturing networks action plan to put into play with your present and future friends.
