Crack Your Emotion Code for Better Communication
Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: Ovient, Inc. (Inside Plug and Play) 440 N. Wolfe Rd., Sunnyvale, CA 94085
Ovient has invited TAPIN to bring you a seminar designed to raise your emotional awareness and give you tools to crack your emotion code to be a better communicator, innovator, connector, and leader.
While we often talk about the mechanics of communication (word choice, speech organization, body language), we often overlook the role our emotions play in the communication process. How does what we feel influence how we communicate?
Effective communication depends on the ability to be highly self-aware and engage emotional intelligence in what we say and do. Understanding and expressing our purpose to others in a human way is the key to building strong connections between co-workers, clients, consumers, employees, and leaders.
In a world overwhelmed by information, we pay attention to the things that move and connect us. Understanding our emotion code is no longer a personal journey, but a strategic differentiator for professional success.
If you have ever felt frustration, anger, anxiety, fear, or resentment in the workplace and not known how to manage and channel it, this seminar is for you.
What is included?
- Two-hour seminar
- Handouts and reference materials including tips, tricks, strategies, and concepts
- Q & A time with the instructor
