Leaders…….it doesn't matter if you are a traditionalist, baby boomer, generation X, or a millennial…this workshop is for you!
Being a leader and manager in health and human services is exciting and can also come with many challenges in effective communication skills. Good communication mitigates conflict. Steven R Covey once said, "Trust is the glue of life. It's the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It's the foundational principle that holds relationships together. " There has been much discussion about generation gaps but we believe in large part, the result of miscommunication and misunderstanding is fueled by common insecurities and the desire for recognition and validation for a job well done. As a leader, understanding common areas that all generations respond to is important. Come and explore ideas for retiring the generation gap theory and how employees young and old can find common ground through relationship-building. Good relationships can mitigate the vicissitudes of organizational life and improve the productivity bottom line. In this technological age, leaders need to do more, than ever before, to ensure positive relationships within their organizations. Come and learn techniques for building relationships and improving communication in the workplace in this hands-on workshop.
