Managing Expectations: Effective Communication Skills | Online | Atlanta

About this workshop

The secret to a seamless working life? Managing expectations with key stakeholders. The reason why so many of us find this challenging? We were never given the tools or taught the skills to communicate successfully when challenges arise. Those who are consistently successful at work share the ability to communicate a solution-oriented mindset, leverage the buy-in of key stakeholders (internally and externally) and can use constructive communication skills when it counts. In this fun, two-hour session, learn tactical skills to gain assertiveness, confidence and understand the nuances of powerful communication at work.
