Event Details

Being an Effective Communicator is the key to succeed personally and professionally. Learning and honing communication skills directly impacts office relationships, ensures customer satisfaction, and improves a business's or individual's bottom line. Having conversations about unconscious bias as it is linked to communication and the gender divide will improve a company's recruitment, hiring, promotions, and retention practices.

Effective Communication is a learned skill and takes practice. It is more than just an exchange of information. It is about learning a skill set that includes verbal, vocal and non-verbal communication, written communication, along with active and reflective listening. A message is more than words you say; it's how you say them. Only 7% of any message is the words.

  • To learn how Effective Communication impacts workplace relationship
  • To understand how Ineffective Communication can be your biggest downfall
  • To discuss Unconscious Bias linked to communication
