As human beings, we naturally crave connection. We want to feel part of a larger community, purposefully working together toward a common good. Yet, in an age of Zoom calls and hybrid workplaces, more than ever, employees are reporting increasing loneliness and a sense of disconnection from their teams and colleagues. During the 20 years that Gallup has asked us: Do you have a best friend at work? The engagement needle has barely moved. How we lead, connect, and inspire others matters. It’s time to look up, show up, and step up in all our relationships to build trust and accelerate our success. The question we should be asking ourselves is: Am I a best friend at work? In this inspiring webinar, presented by award-winning author and leadership expert Morag Barrett, you will learn the following:

  • An understanding of the personal and business impact of strong workplace relationships;
  • Increased self-awareness of your own leadership presence and the impact on your critical relationships at work;
  • Inspiration and concrete ideas to build connections, deepen your relationships, and how to be an ally for yourself and others.
