As humans, we’re wired to belong, relate, connect, give, and be kind. Join Dr. Nick Holton, Shipley’s Associate Director of Positive Education, to learn about the difference between “small” (individual) potential and “big” (collective) potential, as well as some tangible tips for nurturing the relationships and communities of which you are a part.
