"3 Keys to Developing Successful Professional Partnerships: Role clarity, Goal clarity and Skill development"
Date: Tuesday, June 11th
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Speaker Tammy Jordan, Founder & Principal of Leader Consulting Group (www.theleaderconsultants.com), will discuss developing successful business relationships.
This professional development opportunity will help participants "get clear" about what they are hoping to achieve from their professional relationships at work, in their network of professional colleagues and in a mentor/protégé partnership. By understanding individual needs, goals and expectations, both parties will be empowered to reach a shared understanding of each other as they initiate and seek stronger connections in professional partnerships. Participants will learn best-practice skills that they can put to work right away. Skill training will include the art of asking powerful questions, level three listening and appreciative inquiry.
This is a repeat presentation of the February 2013 event. If you missed it the first time, now is your chance to benefit from this training.
Thank you to Geocomp Corporation for providing meeting space for this event. If your company would also like to sponsor to help defray the cost of this event, please contact Janet Keating-Connolly at email@example.com. Sponsors will be promoted at the event and on the SWEP-MA website.

SWEP-MA has partnered with Click & Pledge, a company specializing in serving non-profit organizations, to provide secure online payment processing for our members' convenience. We're sure you'll like the convenience of this new option we've added.
Note: Credit card transactions processed through SWEP-MA's Click & Pledge's payment processing system sometimes incur an extra $1.00 ‚Äì $2.00 charge that appears on your credit card statement as a foreign transaction fee. Whether you are charged this extra fee depends on which of Click & Pledge's transaction-processing gateways your credit card company puts the charge through. Click & Pledge is an American company; SWEP-MA is an American organization; and the transactions are conducted solely in U.S. dollars, however neither SWEP-MA nor Click & Pledge charges the fee and neither can prevent it. If you receive a charge for this foreign transaction fee, you should be able to have it reversed by asking your credit card provider to remove it. We apologize for this occasional inconvenience and are working to resolve it.
