Do you know that even the most prestigious and high profile organizations struggle to attract and retain the best talent because of organizational culture? Do you also know that Millennials, employees of color and women too often feel disconnected, unwelcome and even lonely inside organizations? Have you read that this is the loneliest generation in American history?

In this highly experiential workshop with author Charles Vogl, participants will learn rarely discussed yet time tested principles that strengthen organizational connections and build team support where and when needed. Each principle is distilled from 3,000 years of spiritual tradition for use in any organization or field. Topics include:

-Defining belonging & community
-Culture is changing (a lot) and disconnection grows
-Principles introduced with interactive exercises.
