Date and Time
Thursday, February 13, 2020 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Kirkhof Center » RM 2270
This training will help participants communicate effectively and will provide specific tools to address barriers to effective communication. This training will also help participants develop tools to have difficult conversations and set themselves up to have the most success in asking for what they want. These tools will be helpful when communicating with people from diverse backgrounds or different disciplines. Furthermore, participants will learn how to prepare for these conversations by working through a specific script that will help them hone in on their message. Participants will learn how to use mindfulness to manage emotions that come up and interfere during interpersonal communication.
As a result of this training, participants will also learn how to validate and listen more effectively. All participants will be able to use real life examples to role play and practice using the skills learned. Tools are taken from the Marsha Linehans Skills manual; however, they are reworked to be used in workplace settings. There will also be material pulled from Leadership professionals such as Steven Covey and John Maxwell. Presented by Elisa Salazar.
