What are the skills needed to be an effective communicator? We will go through some different techniques of communication that are applicable to any place and situation. When you leave you will have these tools available to you.

A big part of being a leader is conducting or attending meetings. I feel meeting management is part of communication because the manner in which you conduct a meeting talks to your style and to your commitment to effective leadership. Following the theme of Appreciative Leadership, we want the meetings to be participatory. What is true in communication — knowing the purpose, and identifying the desired outcome — is the same in meeting management.
