This program is designed for mid-level working professionals and is available for open enrollment. It is also available as part of our certificate programs.



Your ability to create meaningful and lasting relationships directly impacts your success regardless of your role – from corporate executive to company employee to business owner to job seeker.  Growing a larger network with stronger relationships increases your value, influence and impact.
