HYPE Professional Development: Building Trust in the [Virtual] Workplace
Join us for our first professional development session of 2021!
Trust is key to the success of any relationship, and work isn't an exception! During this session, participants will learn about what trust is, what allows trust to grow or breaks it down, and what small steps to take to build trust between your colleagues- especially when we are not always together in person.
