Every business is a people business, and each is centered around relationships -  both internal and external.  If we earn and maintain high quality relationships, then workplace product and employee happiness will increase.  However, these relationships are founded on respect and trust, which can be difficult to build.

Conversations are the pathway to high quality relationships, not emails, newsletters and large meetings.  We need to connect, person to person.  Don’t have time? Change our priorities! Conversations are our duty as a leader.

In this webinar, Leadership Coach John Keyser (C'59) will offer advice on how to:

     -Build productive but also caring relationships with direct reports
     -Adjust management priorities to bring the focus back to employees
     -Engage subordinates in meaningful conversation
     -Create trust among colleagues
     -Transition from more virtual to in person touchpoints
     -Execute difficult conversations, including performance reviews, workplace conflict, and delivering bad news.
