What is your Professional Love Language?

At work, people express and receive appreciation in different ways. If you try to express appreciation in ways that aren’t meaningful to your co-workers, then they may not feel valued at all. The problem is that you’re speaking different languages.

Board Position Feature: Treasurer

Being a treasurer has been rewarding because it allows me to stay involved with many YEP projects and events being planned and executed.
