Build Positive Relationships and Create an Inclusive and Respectful Workplace

Learn to create an inclusive and respectful workplace by utilizing strategies to build positive relationships and foster a collaborative work environment.

In this half-day class, strategies are reviewed to help you effectively manage differences and reduce negativity and the impact both can have on you and your colleagues. The class reveals how you can build positive relationships and assist in creating an environment that allows for the exchange of differing ideas where parties feel equally heard, respected and unafraid to voice dissenting opinions. This class is offered at least once a quarter.
