About this Event

"Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time." - Ruth Bader Ginsburg

One of the biggest challenges for many womxn in business is maintaining powerful and effective communications among colleagues, staff, clients, and community. NAWBO Oregon Womxn in Business Leadership & Communication Workshop Series is here to assist womxn professionals to learn solid, actionable techniques to improve leadership and communication.

Workshop One: “What Did You Say?” Powerful & Effective Communication Skills

Do your actions match your words?

Human communication takes place using the entire body and when the message is mixed, the listener believes actions over words.

In this workshop, you will learn how perception is reality and how to “be” the message you want to communicate.

“Any problem, big or small, within a family, always seems to start with bad communication. Someone isn’t listening.” - Emma Thompson
