Are you experiencing breakdowns in communication among your staff? Would you like everyone in your company to be better able to communicate with each other and with you? If so, this session is for you!

This webinar will cover how to create the conditions to effectively communicate through differences. Do gender differences, personality differences and the differences in our stories influence the outcome? The focus will be on empowering individuals to gain insight and awareness around how they "show up" and contribute to the interaction. When a conversation is nurtured from a space of curiosity and clarity rather than assumption and prediction, there is room to reshape the conversation. As we become more attune to what we need and more aware of how we go about getting our needs met, the opportunity to rewrite the story becomes accessible. Valuing differences while establishing healthy boundaries will lead to an emotionally safe conversation and harmonize the human exchange.

Are you curious about operating a business that respects people, profit, AND the planet? It can be done! Join this webinar to learn what you can do to make your business more socially responsible.

Businesses have historically operated with the sole purpose of enhancing shareholder value. A societal shift in the perspective of investors, employees, and consumers has increased the need for business to operate in a different, socially responsible manner. Operating as a B Corp or benefit company addresses these constituent demands by functioning in a manner that recognizes how business impacts the local and global environment, its workforce, supply chain, and the community. See how this new way of doing can be a game-changer for businesses and entrepreneurs that want to make a profit, but wish to do so in a socially responsible manner.
