Training Industry is proud to present the 2013-14 Women in Leadership Executive Seminar Series. This four-part series will feature top women experts who will share innovative approaches to professional development.
Effective, positive communication is the single biggest driver of success for business teams. New research in the fields of neuroscience and positive psychology shows the incredible ripple effect positive communication can have on employee engagement, productivity and happiness at work.
After spending years as a national CBS News anchor broadcasting to millions and receiving an advanced degree from the University of Pennsylvania in positive psychology, Michelle Gielan developed simple, yet proven techniques for positive communication that drive individual and team success for quantifiable results.
Join us for Part 1 of the Training Industry Women in Leadership Executive Seminar Series program, sponsored by Pearson, a leading learning company recognized on the Working Mother magazine’s 100 Best Companies list for its emphasis on worklife programs for all employees and flexible working opportunities.
In this seminar, you will learn how to inoculate your brain against stress and negativity, praise more effectively, and shift the culture at work to create a talent-enhancing environment.
