How important is effective communication in the scientific workplace? We have all experienced, perhaps more often than we like, a message or conversation resulting in frustration for all parties involved. Even after thoughtful attention to every word, tone and delivery of a message, we may be left confused and exhausted from shifting through misunderstandings and differing expectations.
Can we crack the workplace communication code? Yes, we can. How we communicate our ideas and opinions has a powerful impact on relationships, environment, and morale. By learning to create new ways to speak with and hear one another, we can build meaningful and productive conversations.
This event will provide you with a framework for transforming the powerful tools of speaking, writing, and body language, into building the most important element in better communication, the building of human relationships.
