Join us for an interactive lunch and learn series presented by senior students and faculty from the Masters of Organizational Psychology program at Adler School of Professional Psychology. Presenters will draw from cutting edge research in psychology and leadership to present business professionals with practical principles and techniques for using agile communication to enhance creativity, mindfulness and deeper connections in the workplace.
The current complex organizational climate requires an increased flexibility in the way we communicate. This three hour interactive workshop will provide business professionals with principles and techniques for enhancing their communication skills in the workplace, and in life, based on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience, and leadership. Participants will walk away from the entertaining sessions with practical tools and strategies that will transform the way communication is utilized in the workplace, from difficult one-on-one conversations to inspiring and productive group and team discussions.
Eat while you learn! Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The workshop is $40 per person, and cash only payment will be taken at the door. Registration opens at 12:30 p.m.
