Leaders need to be clear and compelling communicators. However, there are natural tendencies that sometimes hinder the ability to communicate effectively – including conflict avoidance, unconscious bias, listening to respond, and reacting emotionally. All of these obstacles to effective communication can be overcome, and this master class series will show you how. Learn to communicate effectively to enhance your impact in the workplace.
There are four classes that are part of the series. Take as many or as few classes as you like. Those who complete all four will receive an Effective Communication certificate of completion and be invited to a graduation ceremony in June. Two of the four workshops are described below. Specific dates for the series, to be held in early 2019, will be posted in the Fall of 2018. Find out more on the UMass Boston website.
All workshops will be held at the Seaport Hotel Boston from 9am to 3pm.

Learn to increase your ability and willingness to have candid conversations on important issues affecting your organization.
