Communicating Effectively in the Workplace:

Have you ever wondered why it seems so difficult to talk with some people and so easy to talk with others?

Something about the individual made you feel comfortable. A major goal of this workshop is to help participants understand the impact that their communication skills have on other people. They will also explore how improving these skills can make it easier for them to get along in the workplace, and in life.
