Can you hear me? Effective Communications Strategies for Youth
June 14, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$25
Simply to make yourself understood and be able to understand others is one of the most challenging skills in life. It’s also one that is never mastered. As we grow and create relationships with others, we need to continue to evolve our communication skills.
Our relationships with our classmates, colleagues, friends and families all depend on how well we are able to listen and express ourselves. Communication skills are often taken for granted rather than being intentionally developed which leaves many people struggling for years in both their personal and professional lives.
Leadership expert, Liz Keever has developed business leaders nationally and internationally and with such organizations as Anthem, IBM, Google, Maersk, The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Columbia Executive Education, Goldman Sachs, Harvard Executive Education, New York University Stern School of Business, Macy’s, Comcast, Chubb, Citigroup, Standard Bank, Ernst & Young, Chevron, PepsiCo, Verizon, Rockefeller Foundation, the United Nations and the Central Intelligence Agency.
