Be Politically Savvy! How to Successfuly Influence and Communicate with Others

How you communicate (with others) determines your personal success. Unless you are Albert Einstein, your ability to influence your colleagues, parents, siblings, etc. to get your thoughts and ideas implemented is dependent on your communication style.

- Do want to be a politically savvy leader?
- Are your ideas not fully developed in the workplace?
- Are you an effective communicator?
- Are you successfully heard?

Join our workshop on political savviness and influence. Learn how to share your message; what is the effect and judgement made about the message shared; what is the difference between men and women; and successfully be heard!

Parking is available in the front as well as in the parking structure to the right of the entrance.
