September 27: Workshop: Appreciation in the Workplace

September 27 | 6 pm – 8 pm | San Diego History Center

The key to enjoying your work is whether you feel valued and appreciated by those around you. Not everyone feels appreciation in the same way and learning about the languages of appreciation can help you communicate authentic appreciation to your team as well as help you let others know what is meaningful for you. Learning this about yourself and others can help you to feel fulfilled and understood throughout your career!

Shelley Rezai is an Appreciation at Work Certified Facilitator and will guide us through this important discussion.

Panelists/Presenters: Shelley Rezai
