Learning in Unexpected Ways: Power of Personal Narratives

Mar 12, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

They say life is the greatest teacher and the best lessons are learned from experience. Yet, what can we learn from the experiences of others? You may wonder, what can an FBI hostage negotiator teach a salesperson about empathy? What can a rock band teach an individual about teamwork? What can a former Navy Seal teach an executive about humility? Hearing from people with diverse experiences can be a powerful driver for learning, especially in the workplace. Join us as we explore how learning from the perspectives and journeys of others can enhance our soft skills at work and in everyday life.
