Missing the Message
At our April Happy Hour we'll be joined by Megan Worbs of New Ivy Group. In this session, Megan will share why, despite living in an age of endless communication opportunities, our signals are constantly crossed. We'll learn as a group active listening techniques and understand how listening is the key to successful mentorship relationships. We'll then be randomly paired with a partner for an exercise in active listening.
Come prepared with a specific work topic that you'd like to discuss with a partner - examples might include a new job opportunity; a work/life balance issue; a project you were selected for, but your work best friend didn't get.
