Improving Communication & Building Collaboration
When you meet with customers and colleagues, it’s helpful to be aware of your communication strengths and weaknesses. You might run little risk of offending anyone, but you tend to have difficulty being honest and conveying your message. Or, you might hold things in and complain about situations to non-involved parties. Either way, these tendencies build frustration, and likely show up in less than professional behavior and often at the wrong times.
This session will help you influence outcomes and create cooperation through diplomatic and tactful communication. As a result of attending, you will appreciate that standing up for yourself, when done effectively, does not offend others; rather, it strengthens your professional relationships and enables each of you to achieve positive results.
