This program is being offered as part of the Philanthropic Assistants and Coordinators Network (PACNET).

As a sequel to the last program where we discussed navigating different communication styles in your workplace, this next program will focus on developing and sustaining core relationships with your manager. Balancing the need to build a trusting relationship while exercising effective communication can be challenging.  In particular, providing feedback to your manager when dealing with workload prioritization, challenging assignments or saying “no” require both trust and good communication.  

During this program, join us to discuss some common scenarios and share key takeaways. We will explore the commitment of managers dedicating time and means to building relationships with their staff as well as accessing resources that provide guidance and support, including human resources. We will also hear the perspective and experience of a peer who has successfully implemented effective communication with their manager.
