June Featured Topic – Important Relationships For Building a Successful Career

Ask any business leader the secret of their success, and it won’t be long before they mention relationships. “It takes a whole village to raise one child,” as the African proverb says. In your career, one of the most important things you can do is build a village of your own.  

According to research, the 7 types of workplace relationships include coworkers, team members, workplace friends, managers, mentors, mentees and competitors. Our panelists will discuss the most important aspect of these relationships and how to use them effectively.

When it comes to connections, conversations, and having fun making things happen, Emily Bissen is your gal. Blue Heron Business Partners was started to co-create success for founders in building their businesses by doing only what they love and establishing a sales and business development process that works for them and provides them with a plan that keeps their confidence high and their leads flowing. True connection happens through sharing stories and thought-provoking conversations. At the end of the day, we just want to be heard. People remember those who take a genuine interest in whom they are talking to. And that’s what this business is about.
