Effective Workplace Communication Skills

Effective Workplace Communication Skills

Experts suggest that we are communicating in one way or another more than 90% of the time we are awake! Communication can be positive or negative, verbal, non-verbal or in writing. Communicating effectively is a learned skill that requires practice, patience and a desire to be more effective every day.

This interactive and informative webinar program will give attendees the tools that they need to more effectively communicate with others, including those people that we see as difficult or just different. We will focus on the do’s and don’ts of effectively communicating with others, including your boss!
