Speaker: Best-selling author and psychologist Eli Finkel
COVID-19 has upended life for billions of people around the world. Much discussion surrounds the public health and economic impacts, but what about the effects on our closest relationships? Will we see a surge in divorces? A baby boom? Is it possible to stay productive when, all of the sudden, our “coworkers” are ages three to five? How does this impact our relationships with colleagues? Best-selling author and psychologist Eli Finkel addresses such questions in this webinar, leaving plenty of time for Q&A.
Finkel, author of the bestselling book “The All-Or-Nothing Marriage: How the Best Marriages Work,” is a professor of psychology in Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and a professor of management and organizations at Kellogg. In his role as director of Northwestern’s Relationships and Motivation Lab, he has published 150 scientific papers and is a contributor to the op-ed page of The New York Times. The Economist has identified Finkel as "one of the leading lights in the realm of relationship psychology.”
