Powerful Communication:
Craft and Deliver your Message with Authority and Authenticity
June 13, 2019 with Dr. Debbye Turner Bell
Effective communication can impress people but powerful communication can move people to action.  This course identifies the elements of powerful communication and teaches the participants how to harness and utilize their own individual skills to become a communicator that persuades, inspires, and transforms.  The course will be highly interactive with group exercises, skills assessment, demonstrations, critiquing and opportunity for on-site application.  
Communication and Conflict:
How to Navigate Difficult People and Difficult Conversations
July 9, 2019 with Dr. Jarrod Atchison
Do you struggle with problem employees that challenge you at every turn? Does it seem like these people enjoy "debating" you more than contributing to the goals of your organization? Have you ever had a proposal flounder simply because the room was resistant to change? Many communication experts focus on interpersonal communication techniques to help resolve these difficult situations. Dr. Jarrod Atchison, known for his Great Courses series on The Art of Debate, takes a different approach that focuses on preventing and resolving conflict through learning the theory and practice of argumentation.
Championing Your Ideas at Work:
Becoming Your Own Best Advocate
August 6, 2019 with Dr. John Daly
Successful advocates know how important it is to clearly communicate their ideas, how their reputations shape how people respond to their ideas, how they need to build partnerships and alliances with others in getting ideas adopted, how they must "pre-sell" any idea long before formal meetings, and how to be persuasive and influential in meetings. We will discuss new research on each of those topics - research that offers you interesting and surprising ways to champion innovations in your organization.
