The focus of these workshop events is collaboration, networking and community building. Each event will have a guest speaker and a different interest topic.

Leadership can be tough, messy and complicated. This session explores the use of positivity and an affirmative bias to leverage peak performance and reduce mental, emotional and physical distress at work. Join the Lincoln YPG and Doane as they identify characteristics, skills and actions that enhance well-being in the workplace and help people move from “survive” to “thrive”!
