We're Celebrating One on One Month!









Strengthen your relationships this September! It is One on One Month... a time to get to know your coworkers, friends, and family a little better. But don't do this at a party or in a crowd full of people...this September, get to know people by meeting with them one on one.

One on One Month brings recognition to the importance of creating interpersonal relationships. The best way to develop these relationships is by having face to face interaction with another individual. Meeting one on one with someone can help you learn more about a person than you would in groups of people or over the internet. It is the one on one connection that makes the relationship closer and intimate.

To get you started, below is a list of meeting places you can invite someone to meet one on  one:
  • Coffee shop
  • Park
  • Waterfront
  • Go out for lunch/dinner

So go out there and get to know others by meeting one on one! Create strong, important relationships.

Grab some coffee or go on a bike ride! What are some ideas of things you can do to get to know   people better this month?
