The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work
Success depends on building trust by effectively harnessing emotion—while still walking the line between sharing and oversharing. Join Liz Fosslien, as she equips you with the tools to understand, explore, and express your emotions at work, including a list of questions to ask yourself when you experience “difficult” feelings like anger, envy, and anxiety. The session will also cover how to navigate and discuss different work styles and communication preferences. You’ll walk away knowing how to practice selective vulnerability, with a new set of tactical tips on how to better collaborate, and best practices for digital communication.

BUZZ Talk Discussions
For this intimate and informal peer-to-peer networking environment, attendees will participate in short, focused discussions where your voices are heard and you are able to share with others what’s on your mind and what keeps you up at night as it relates to personal and professional challenges.
You will play an integral role in the creation of content and discussion points via a confidential pre-work survey. Participants will then participate in small group discussions, launching new ideas and sharing with others. A great opportunity to lend your voice, discuss top-of-mind issues and share in the power of knowledge!
