Event Details

Virtual Lunch & Learn

To be vested means to have a full right to something; typically thought of in terms of a retirement benefit. But, what does it mean to be vested with each other? If we are working alongside or for someone, are we holding back a percentage of our relationship? If so, are we getting back that same effort? The answer to the question is probably yes.

We will explore being fully vested with others whether its co-workers, bosses, teammates, and the like. This means being vulnerable with each other by sharing, caring, and yes – leading.

Learning Objectives

  1. Consider notion of checking our baggage at the door as a myth
  2. Discuss effective balance of vulnerability in the workplace
  3. Learn methods for being vulnerable with others for a positive impact on them
