Join us for an opportunity to reflect on how to effectively enhance our workplace communication.
Steve Pearson will expand our thinking and open new avenues to workplace interactions and conflict resolution.
Steve’s last MASA Brown Bag, Enhancing Workplace Communication: How to Avoid Taking Things Personally, was extremely well-received by participants. This is a presentation not to be missed.
