May 22, 2018 Chapter Meeting: The Value of Being Heard
5:30pm Informal Networking/Dinner
LEARN HOW TO FOSTER A VOICE FOR YOURSELF AND THOSE AROUND YOU!
Communication is difficult. Words are often misunderstood or misconstrued. People are formulating their responses before you are done talking. Or, the response you receive is completely off topic and it is obvious they weren't listening to you. Communication doesn't have to be hard. Liysa will teach you to use improv principles to help you be heard and lead those wanting to help you be heard.
The objectives of the presentation include:
1) How to listen with yes, and
2) Avoiding self judgement to engage better
3) Reminders to live in the moment
