Session Description
Many of us remain passive against broken, indirect communication habits or lack confidence in our business communication skills, hoping that things will miraculously improve—but they won’t. Not without skills and effort. The people you work with can work with you, around you, or against you. How people work with you depends on the business relationships you cultivate. Do your colleagues trust you? Can they speak openly with you when projects and tasks go awry? Communication is at the heart of building successful and candid business relationships. Learn how to improve your business communication skills from one of the leading authorities, who shares insight and techniques from her award winning book “How to Say Anything to Anyone”. You’ll learn how to, ask for what you want at work, improve all working/business relationships, reduce the gossip and drama in your office, tell people when you’re frustrated in a way that resonates, take action on your ideas and feelings, determine what’s important to management, get honest feedback from co-workers so you know your reputation. Improving your business communication skills will positively influence your office relationships, but more so help you attain the level of career success you’ve always strived for. This new IMS program is interactive, fun, relevant and packed with immediately applicable tools and techniques and directed at professionals that strive to work, live and play well with others.
