Strengthening Connections at Work

June 8th, 9 am or 4 pm GMT+1

Watch the recording

In the past year, we have all seen the unprecedented shift to virtual working and digitization, bringing with it many new opportunities and technologies to stay in touch.

And yet, we are witnessing a reduction in “ human connection” and a decline in employee motivation, innovation, agility and adaptability – compound with an increase in loneliness, mental illnesses, and a sharp rise in employee burn-outs.

Being able to “connect” at a human level, even in this new more virtual world, has never been more important – and being able to encourage and embrace diversity and inclusion of different “connector profiles” will be critical for any organization to thrive, not just survive.

Join this free webinar with Guy Lubitsh, Professor of Leadership & Psychology who based on his latest book ‘Connect – resolve conflict, improve communication and strengthen relationships' will share some insights together with Dr. Carina Schofield, Senior Research Fellow at Hult Ashridge.

Join this 60-minute live session to explore how to:

  • Understand the changing context for relationships at work
  • Take stock of your personal connector style
  • Connect more effectively with team members
  • Apply key tips and techniques that will allow you to perform at your best

Participants will receive access to a questionnaire to discover their own connector type upon registration.

When? June 8th 2021
