We discuss interpersonal communication and all the human stuff that gets in the way.
To communicate more effectively we cannot rely on communication skills alone. We need to shine a light on our perceptions of other people and ourselves. We delve into topics like emotional intelligence, body language, deception, storytelling, social engineering, culture, personality, negotiation, sales and leadership.
Join us as we learn to get our message across with more courage, clarity and connection.
