What's On

Registration Closed

You talk to people everyday. But do you really feel like you're communicating?
You go to networking events and other social gatherings and you feel as if it is a big chore or burden. Even the most seasoned executives sometimes find themselves uncomfortable in social situations.

It is said that 9/10 conversations fail!

Meaningful conversations are those that seek to create understanding and ignite insights by sharing perspectives and ideas during the dialogue. Meaningful conversations are based on the premise of discovery, exploration and mutual respect, rather than the exertion of power and control.

By joining this workshop, you can equip yourselves with ways to….
• Resolve issues in ways that build trust and commitment.
• Feel comfortable in striking a conversation with a stranger and yet make it meaningful
• Manage your EI and have the gravitas and presence in that conversation
• Put a cap on small talk and transition into meaningful conversation

To minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus, this informative session will be conducted in the format of a webinar.
