That Lovin’ Feeling
How to use dating, mating & relating tips to enhance your workplace

Janeen Halliwell, Paul Fleming
90 minutes
Category: Tools/Techniques
Maximum Participants: 30

Sometimes the workplace gets raw, emotional, and scary for everyone. Whether it’s a simple day to day business process or special project, our participation exposes us and our ideas to the world and our peers. Communication gets personal. Tensions increase. Tears flow (ok, maybe not tears). What’s a person to do?

Join in a fun and highly experiential workshop with Janeen and Paul as they share tips, tools, and skills from the dating, mating, and relating world and learn how to transpose them into enhancing your workplace. And who knows – maybe your love life will benefit too!

The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session

  • Awaken to how every human connection, even in a business setting, is just like dating, mating, and relating
  • Recognize the signs of spiralling relationships that need a little tenderness
  • Practice using tools, tips, and techniques to create a little love, openness, and honesty between people

Paul’s day jobs give him a unique perspective on the working world.
