The skill of effective communication is at the forefront of a successful work environment. Given that many people have been working from a distance for almost a year, effective virtual communication is critical to engagement, productivity, and general well-being.

This interactive workshop is part of Penn HR's Ideas for Sustainable Life Balance series that provides tools for increasing your ability to be super-resilient. The term “anti-fragility” takes the concept of resilience to the next level by asserting that there are conditions whereby we are not only able to bounce back, but we become even stronger as a result. Join us for a discussion based on the work of Harvard educator Dr. Ben-Shahar, author of Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment.
