Communicate with Impact

As an executive working your way up the professional ladder, you need to be able to:

  • address conflict and have difficult conversations constructively,
  • listen to, understand and incorporate different perspectives in order to enhance employee engagement and business outcomes,
  • actively listen and use improvisation to embrace and build upon ideas, and
  • manage thoughts, feelings and energy to say what is important when communication becomes challenging.

We have an all-star line-up of subject matter experts to provide insights, tools, and practical, hands on learning to help you and other people in your organization communicate effectively in the following master classes:
