It’s clear that men and women communicate differently – but how do these differences affect us in the workplace?
The Association for Women in Communications (AWC) - Detroit chapter presents a discussion on gender communications with Laurie Horvath at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 27, at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (One Towne Square, suite 600, Southfield).
What can be learned from studying the way we communicate to better solve problems, react to stressful situations, score points towards promotion and minimize conflict? Discussing and learning from these differences make us better communicators.
Learn tips on how to communicate better with your coworkers, those who report to you, and your boss. What are you saying non-verbally is as important as your words. See how others can have an entirely different perspective of what was communicated. Learn how to interpret reactions different than yours and better understand a situation.
