Soft Skill Training II: Effective Communication and Personal Branding 4/29

Our speaker will come from CIE Dallas Chapter and will share with you on what she learned from years of soft skill coaching. This is a follow-up program from our 10/29/2016 Soft Skill Training: Leadership and Personal Networking event.

On 4/29, you can learn and practice key skills to be effective in your business communications in a variety of settings such as presentations, meeting discussions, networking interactions, and interviews. The goal is to equip you to navigate and climb the corporate ladder or lattice, to be a better manager in leading your team and working with others, and build your personal brand.

What is effective communication?
How do you deliver the message clearly and effectively?
What is the message sent with certain facial expressions, tone, body language, and posture? How could you improve them?
How could you disagree and express your different opinions in meetings effectively?
How do you prepare ourselves to do public speaking?  For interviews?
How do you communicate in private to achieve a goal?  How to express criticism?  Affirmation?
How do you want to improve your communication skills?
How do you build your personal brand?
