Exceptional leaders need effective communication strategies. What you say, how you say it, with whom you chose to communicate, and how your receive messages from others are keys to success in the workplace (and everyplace). Using basic math principles, Audrey will discuss inclusive communication formulas that add value, subtract leadership land mines, multiply your strengths, and divide your weaknesses. We will explore innovative ways to aspire, advance, and achieve. Be prepared to exponentially improve your leadership communication – no calculator needed!
