Deep within us all exists a yearning to be a valued member of a thriving community. We are not meant to work alone, succeed alone or suffer alone. To connect with one another in meaningful ways is precisely how we improve productivity, engagement and personal fulfillment.

Disengagement and isolation will drain the energy from our personal and professional lives. Karen will introduce the four key pillars of creating a healthy workplace community (Curiosity, Unity, Responsibility, Engagement). These pillars are relevant, as each person contributes to the mission of Family and Consumer Sciences.

The soul of America is sitting in the workplace; it is where we spend most of our waking hours. As we transform our organization into a healthy and unified community, we create a more productive and satisfied workforce. We also transform the world in which we live and learn. Community is the C.U.R.E.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop best practices to unify your workforce.
  2. Discover what breathes life into you and your workplace.
  3. Enlist, engage and enroll employees at every level.
