About This Class

In this overview, we will explore how you are communicating and how that is enhancing or taking away from your effectiveness. We will do this by engaging in fun and interactive exercises that will make you feel more aware, concise, clear and confident in how you are communicating.

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring COVID-19 very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.


Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.


Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this offering will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.
