About the course
With this abrupt transition to physical and social distancing, it is more important than ever to prioritize human connection to curb the onset of loneliness, focus on our well-being, and manage our careers. Indeed, our social networks boost our health, build resilience, help us bounce back from adversity, determine our productivity, and guide us to new opportunities. Yet, our prospects for networking have been brought to a standstill. In this workshop, we will discuss the perspectives, principles, and practices that can help you and your organization cultivate and maintain the critical relationships that keep us connected. Specifically, participants will learn: (1) the principles of personal and organizational networks, (2) strategies for overcoming barriers to networking, (3) tactics for managing connections in a virtual environment, and (4) how to assemble a personal board of advisors.
