5 Ways Women Can Communicate Better at Work [Event]
A while back, Kelly Harrington reached out to me and asked a question:
"What are women doing wrong the in the workplace?"
Ironically, I had just read yet another sobering article about how women were still not getting paid as much as men, and that, even worse, when they tried to try to climb the ladder, their efforts were seen as aggressive and unladylike. I thought, “UGH. Women do not understand how to leverage their interaction styles to advance their careers!” That’s when Kelly invited me to contribute to an on-line event she is holding. It’s free-of-charge to attend my session on October 26. You can sign-up for access HERE. In this session, I’ll explain how your interaction style is getting misinterpreted. More importantly, I’ll discuss five ways every woman can leverage her interaction style (a.k.a the way she communicates) more effectively. Come learn how to be a better communicator – it could help advance your career! J.T.

  • The fear that a customer data breach will result in a reputational damage
  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
