Join HBA Houston for an evening of networking and conversation with Jackie Stavros author of “Conversations Worth Having-Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement.” Conversations is the primary way we connect with others especially in workplace and social settings, imagine trying to lead a team, department or work on a project with just one other person without words nor conversations? Conversations is the lifeline to how we get things done in most settings. If we can have conversations that are appreciative and inquiry-based, it will strengthen relationships and promote situations where you and others can thrive and flourish!
