There is more to creating relationships than a “like,” “link,” “share,” or “follow.” While the popular social media tools can make it seem like we have countless friends, colleagues, and professional associates, SLPs know better than anyone that it is real human engagement that leads to opportunity and outcomes. Every day, you work to ensure your students, patients, and clients have the skills and tools they need to communicate and connect, but what about yourself? This opening program will give you tips, strategies, motivation, and encouragement to ensure your personal focus remains on the basics of establishing meaningful connections to lead you to success in your career and other areas of your life.
