Jeff's New Purpose

  Jeff knew he would face some tough challenges in his job search. Last October, he was unexpectedly laid off after eight years as a warehouse laborer. Before that, he worked in construction.
   “Physically, I knew I couldn’t do that kind of work anymore,” said Jeff, who is in his late 50s.
   Today, Jeff is working as a human services representative with Hennepin County, and he has a whole new sense of purpose.

Our interactions are not just one-sided, but a two-way street where we both feel invested in the relationship and the goals we set together. Rapport also demonstrates mutual understanding and a higher comfort level in sharing concerns or questions.  The online dictionary defines rapport as “a close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other’s feelings or ideas and …
