Authentic Relationships: The Benefits of Being Known and Valued at Work and Beyond

Thursday, March 30 at 12 noon CST

It’s possible that in an average week we spend more time with our co-workers than our family, and it's important to explore these work relationships to understand how vital they can be to help you thrive in your career.

This webinar will address building authentic workplace relationships in which you feel known and valued, guided by the research of Professor Amy Colbert and the insight of Iowa alumnus Renee Gullickson, DNP, ARNP, PMHNP-BC. You will leave this session equipped to forge powerfully authentic and mutually supportive relationships with your colleagues.
