People Need People: The Power of Healthy Relationships

Building healthy relationships are foundational to cultivating and building teams that produce success. Being able to engage in healthy relationships with clients, family, and co-workers will propel us into an environment of collaborative empowerment. Understanding the relationships we have will either help us or hinder us, and will also determine the choices we make whether to hold on to unforgiveness, resentment, bitterness, hurt, and pain. These roadblocks are used to keep us from communicating with and treating each other with dignity and respect. This course will provide an opportunity to examine our relationship with clients, co-workers, administration, and others.  It will also help us understand our role in prevention, and the importance of collaboration and communication in building healthy relationships that will result in lasting partnerships.
