Communicating with Confidence and Clarity

Do you have ideas and opinions that often go unexpressed and unheard? Do you doubt and deliberate until it feels too late to say something? Practice the skills of being assertive without being pushy and learn strategies for effectively sharing your ideas and opinions in a safe and positive environment with your peers and a professional leadership coach.

We were able to figure out what core values we held regarding speaking up and how improving our ability to speak up could help us live up to those core values. - Synthesis participant
