Title: Communication and Connection

Description:  The ability to successfully communicate is important for effective and positive work relationships. But if connection is missing, then communication can often be one-sided, mis-construed or miss the mark all together. This session will explore how to be all right with differing opinions, and the idea of I’m right/You’re wrong. Using information from Crucial Conversations, Lifescripts, and Profit from the Positive, participants will learn about the story behind the communication, and how to improve connection and workplace relationships.
