Top-notch communication skills can mean the difference in your career between going places ... and going nowhere. Communicating With Tact and Skill, an intensive two-day workshop designed for career-focused professionals, will give you the powerful communication strategies and interpersonal skills you need to get your point across tactfully and diplomatically.
You'll also gain tips for delivering standout presentations and making your letters and memos pack a punch. You'll discover expert techniques for exerting influence on the actions and attitudes of others, "how-to's" for communicating effectively and tactfully in a variety of tough situations, and strategies for putting an end to energy-draining feuds and infighting in your department.
And because everyone makes verbal blunders from time to time, you'll learn damage control techniques to help you get your foot out of your mouth gracefully—and save the day.
The class meets at Johns Hopkins at Eastern on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 25 and 26, and participants must attend both days. Register online for the Learning and Development course, suitable for both full- and part-time faculty and staff.
