Administrative Professionals Series Day Three: Resolving Conflict in the Workplace, December 10, 2020
Administrative professionals are in a position to communicate on behalf of their bosses and to communicate information to their bosses that is necessary for good decision making. This one-day course will reiterate that there is a right and a wrong way for workers to state their case. The right way is in a forthright, positively assertive manner. Attendees will gain insight into how to avoid pitfalls that get in the way of positive communication and how to operate with more confidence. A section on confidently making decisions will also be covered. The result will be employees whose communication and decision-making skills are enhanced.
