Is it sometimes hard to state your case to others: to express your viewpoint to your boss, stand up for yourself with a demanding family member, or confront a difficult co-worker or neighbor? This session will help you to make your point-of-view heard by showing how to recognize “hidden” sources of power, develop a balance between information and emotion, and get your message across in a positive, productive way.

IT’S WHAT YOU SAY AND HOW YOU SAY IT
How to Become a More Effective Communicator
Wednesday, April 22

Do you ever feel as if your message is not being heard...or not coming across the way you intended? Effective communication—at home or in the workplace—requires you to be aware of the messages that you send in three different ways: the words you use, the way you deliver them, and your nonverbal cues. You don’t have to be a bully or a doormat! Learn how to communicate messages that are consistent, assertive, and effective.
