YOUniversity with Carole Robin

Connect: Building Exceptional Relationships with Family, Friends, and Colleagues

We are thrilled to welcome Carole Robin, author of Connect and formerly the Dorothy J. King Lecturer in Leadership and Director of the Arbuckle Leadership Fellows Program at Stanford Graduate School of Business.

What she will be teaching us is “Life Changing & Transformational.” These are the words most often used to describe the course on which her teachings are based. The course is the legendary Stanford Business School course Interpersonal Dynamics (affectionately known as “Touchy Feely”).

Don’t be fooled by the name “Touchy Feely.” Like the students who have taken this course for decades, Carole will be introducing us to tactical and actionable strategies to take your relationships from shallow to exceptional by cultivating authenticity, vulnerability, and honesty, while being willing to ask for and offer help, share a commitment to growth, and deal productively with conflict.

In addition to learning from one of the top experts in the world on connection, you will have opportunities to apply her lessons in real time with other successful CEOs and Entrepreneurs throughout the event.
