Michelle Mazur is quoted as saying, “The way you communicate in challenging times dictates whether your organization thrives or barely survives.” During this workshop, Shaily Hakiman will help you discover tricks for understanding your audience’s perspective, influencing others to consider a new perspective, and handling feedback effectively. Though this workshop is focused on the Communication as outlined by SHRM’s Competency Model, it will also touch on ethical practices, global and cultural effectives, and relationship-management as they relate to tough conversations.
