The Importance of Maternal Health

Presented By:
Alissa Carpenter, M.Ed., Keynote Speaker and Facilitator for Everything's Not Okay and That's Okay (R)

Our workforces are more diverse than ever. Teams are working across geography, generations, and cultures... From virtual spaces and varied mindsets. So how do we achieve authentic understanding in the workplace with so many different people in the mix? It begins with communicating across our differences and with candor.

But it's one thing to talk about communicating more effectively, and another to implement strategies--especially during those frantic times in the office when you're under a deadline, feel pressure, and are addressing issues with people who you don't always see eye to eye with. According to a study conducted at the University of Kansas, it takes an average of 50 hours to turn an acquaintance into a friend, and 200 hours to make a close friend. Authentic communication and relationship building takes time! It's essential to understand what communication means in the workplace and how to effectively use this time to build relationships that make a difference.

Learning Objectives:

- Common drivers among the generations in the workforce
- Becoming more conscious of diversity (sexual orientation, race, religion, gender, ethnicity, generation, geography)
- Communication strategies and best practices to engage in with people different from yourself at work
