Topic:  Communication – The 3 Key Areas to Improve

          Productivity and Profitability at Work

 

 

Speaker:  Beth Sears, PhD

One of the most prevalent problems in business is the lack of open honest communication between co-workers on every organizational level, which costs organizations millions of dollars a year. This dinner presentation will help attendees to learn skills to dramatically improve interpersonal and organizational communication. These skills will help reduce miscommunication and improve organizational effectiveness, thus increasing productivity and profitability.

 

· Create an understanding of things within your power that influence your ability to communicate

· Acquire awareness regarding communication barriers

· Gain skills to enhance clarity in communication

· Identify interdepartmental and organizational communication strategies that boost productivity
