Fortunately, Concern has provided a refuge for Silicon Valley employers’ employees to help them build resilience to navigate life’s transitions for 37 years. During her Featured Member Presentation, Cecile Currier, CEO of Concern, will share how the EAP has grown with the Valley and adapted their response to providing counseling and support services when and where needed 24/7/365, both in person and virtually.
Go-Round Discussion of Member Issues: During this time, each Member is given an opportunity to share an “issue” with the Group in order to receive knowledgeable and confidential feedback on how best to tackle that issue. Issues often center around: management/planning concerns, how to best respond to new industry trends, fleshing out a new strategy, what were the best practices used (or hazards) from fellow Members who have dealt with a similar issue. In order to get the most value from each session, we encourage our Members to bring an issue for discussion to each meeting.
