Actions Speak Louder Than Words…Do Yours?
We are all super busy these days running from meeting to meeting, taking calls while in transit and trying to multi-task constantly! But how do your actions speak to your supervisors, peers, co-workers and subordinates? Many people have no idea how their body language, inattention to people or looking at their phones impact others perspectives on themselves. Have you ever been in a meeting where no one is listening to the presenter? Have you ever had a conversation with your boss and they are looking at their phone the whole time? Have you had to repeat yourself because your boss/co-worker/subordinate was distracted? Then this is the session for you!
You will walk away from this session with the ability to…
- Ensure you capture the attention of your audience from the moment you start speaking
- Confront someone constructively when they are not paying attention to you and get their attention
- Utilize simple tips and tricks to ensure you have someone’s attention
