What No One Taught You
About Workplace Communications but Everyone Expects You to Know

Carol Bowser, JD

President, Conflict Management Strategies

Successful communication at work involves more than making an effort to be a better listener. Success depends on the other person being able to hear and understand what you are trying to get across - without being loud or rude. However, the most common barrier to successful communication at work is a difference in styles of communication.

  • Benefits of attending:
    • Learn the primary causes of miscommunication and misunderstandings at work.
    • Discover your own preferred communication style.
    • Leverage your communication style for success at work.
    • Develop an Action Plan for utilizing your knowledge immediately.
    • Laugh at least once.


Dealing with difficult people in the workplace

Dee Knapp, JD

President, Accord & Collaboration

Difficult people are difficult because of their behavior. Understand the behavior driving a personality in order to prevent and resolve conflict. Participants will:

  • Learn strategies for dealing with 5 kinds of difficult behaviors
  • Gain awareness of behaviors in the workplace that hamper productivity
  • Discover your options and alternatives
