Price: $720.00

Overview

Have you ever had one of those conversations where you think you and your peer are both on the same page, only to walk away and later realize that couldn't be further from the truth. We hear you - ­communication is hard. It is also an essential component of effective leadership.

In this course, we're going to take a long look at what contributes to effective, successful communication. We'll explore the role perception plays in how we communicate and discuss strategies for ensuring not only that we are being heard, but that we are really hearing others as well. We will then apply these new communication strategies to managing conflict in the workplace, both diffusing and harnessing it to inspire creativity and innovation among your team.
