"Workplace Politics: Connecting the Dots Between Ego, Motivation, and Emotional Intelligence to Navigate Workplace Politics"

Date/Time: Thursday July 13th | 11:30am - 1:00pm

Location: Bellingham Golf & Country Club | 3729 Meridian Street

What We'll Cover:

    Toxic workplace politics are what is stopping your company from creating a solid succession plan, knowledge transfer, and what’s causing your young new talent to leave after you’ve poured countless resources into training them. In this session, we’ll explore mastering your own ego, motivations, and emotional intelligence to appeal to those around you to advance your ideas, your career, and your organization.
