What are your career goals? Sure, we're all great with technology, but to continue growing in our careers requires that we do the unthinkable... we actually have to TALK to each other. And even worse... we have to TALK to the business people in our companies! Why? WHY? Why would we possibly want to TALK to PEOPLE? The answer to that question is that today more than ever, technology IS the business. So it makes sense that IT can help or hurt a business more than ever. It's critical that we align our IT efforts, goals, and strategies with those of the business - and all of that requires good communication. Would you like to have a seat at the table, to be taken seriously as a businessperson, and to have a voice in the decisions our companies make? Then this is the interactive workshop for you. Fair warning... this will be an INTERACTIVE workshop. Attendees will be encouraged to speak in front of the group, and will be divided into teams to work together on critical thinking exercises and role play. Yes, you'll be asked to talk, to work in groups, and to role play. If you find that uncomfortable, perfect! Take that first step outside your comfort zone. Enroll, participate, be uncomfortable, and grow... and you may just find yourself listened to with newfound respect and interest by your business. Come to this interactive workshop to partner with your business and communicate for success.
