Do you ever feel that your words come across as weak, passive, or wishy-washy? Conversely, do your words sound pushy, abrasive, or arrogant? Between these two extremes lies a powerful way of communication that combines confidence, strength, and authenticity and allows you to stand out. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from Andie Kramer and Al Harris, co-authors of two award-winning books that are designed to teach you how to communicate effectively. Learn how to identify and eliminate the words and phrases that decrease your authority and self-assurance - and discover what to say instead. Topics include:

  • How to ask for what you want/need and get it without losing your sense of self or being overly harsh or aggressive;
  • Enhance how other perceive you in meetings, business conversation, or sales situations - both virtually ad face-to-face; and
  • What men can do to help women achieve better communication

$25 - all attendees
