    SEMINAR SCHEDULE

    COMMUNICATION: HOW TO EFFECTIVELY LISTEN TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND COLLABORATION

    2 IDCEC hours | 9 to 11 a.m.

    When teams aren’t communicating effectively, it leads to a sick environment of information hoarding, resentment by those who aren’t kept up to date, bad planning and inefficiency. The team ends up working at cross purposes or unaware that others are taking on the same task.

    Renee SafrataIn this two-hour seminar attendees will be able to identify where communication is breaking down and give them effective techniques to start to create a team culture of clear communication. Participants will learn:

    > A five-step model for effective conversations
    > Listening techniques that ensure clarity and understanding of one another and most importantly, become aware of the impact and cost of poor communication
    > How to resist the temptation to make assumptions and instead to be curious about other people's viewpoint and opinions
    > Learn how to leave conversations with agreed actions or next steps.
