About the event
This communication workshop helps you build the skills to connect more deeply with people you know and, more importantly, those you don’t know yet.
In these isolating times and increasingly virtual reality, we’ve forgotten how to communicate, and that’s affecting our ability to collaborate. This (Zoom) workshop can help.
Through a series of interactive, story-based activities, you’ll practice active listening, framing effective questions, and asking follow-up questions as a group. We’ll give you some tips on how to get past the scripts we all use in daily conversation. Then, in a community-building exercise, we’ll pair you up in breakout rooms to share stories about the one thing we’ve all got in common: Life.
By attending this workshop, you’ll strengthen soft skills critical to surviving and thriving in today’s world. Among them:
- Creative problem solving
- Collaboration across differences
