Curating Your Network – with Johanna G. Seasonwein, PhD

Wednesday, July 24 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm

109 NW Naito
109 NW Naito Parkway, Portland, OR 97209

This workshop is offered exclusively to current students and alumni of the Oregon Executive MBA and UO Applied Information Management programs.

Networks don’t just happen—they have to be carefully cultivated and nourished. Effective networks rely on connection and trust, both of which can be fostered through practices associated with emotional intelligence, such as mindful listening and empathy. In this interactive two-hour workshop, participants will:

  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of their current network and develop a game plan to strategically grow their network;
  • Learn what makes for an effective and positive networking interaction and what kinds of questions to ask;
  • Understand the importance of listening and empathy in the context of networking; and
  • Practice connecting with others in a networking environment.
