COST: Exclusively for Forté Premium Access Pass members
For most people networking is dirty work. If the word “networking” makes you nervous, this webinar will shift your perspective. Dr. Marissa King, Professor of Organizational Behavior at Yale School of Management, joins Forté to share how the strength of our relationships and quality of our connections profoundly affect our health, happiness, and career success.
Find out how your extended network can offer valuable support as you develop innovative ideas, explore new career opportunities, and make decisions about your future. Discover how to effectively navigate and maintain your network during the pandemic — and beyond.
This webinar will cover:
- How to overcome common barriers to building a more effective network
- How women’s and men’s networks differ, and what those differences mean for work-life balance and career success
- The surprisingly positive effects of the pandemic on women’s networks
- Why harnessing the untapped value in your existing network is far more important than meeting new people.
The webinar is presented by:
