Professional and work relationships can be challenging at times. The stressors of deadlines, power differentials, different personalities, communication, delegation, and maintaining a professional environment in the workplace can often feel overwhelming and may make the workplace a difficult environment to navigate. Having a safe and comfortable place to learn and practice crucial communication, essential conflict management, and collaborative techniques allows the work environment to improve and the work relationships to strengthen. Working to build shared values while also learning how to respect differences can keep you from spending years in harmful patterns at work and in professional relationships.
