Interpersonal Communication Skills for Women
As much as 95% of all business communication is interpersonal communication. For this reason, effectiveness requires more than consciousness about the spoken words. What’s communicated visually, personally, and especially relationally counts much more. In addition, we know men and women have learned to communicate through two different socialization processes. The differences in styles can sometimes help or hurt women at work. This interactive workshop is designed to increase women’s consciousness and interaction choices by using a variety of effective communication tools and techniques and structured learning experiences.
