Cambridge, MA

How important is effective communication in the scientific workplace?

Even after thoughtful attention to every word, tone and delivery of a message, we may be left confused and exhausted from shifting through misunderstandings and differing expectations. This event will provide you with a framework for transforming the powerful tools of speaking, writing, and body language, into building the most important element in better communication, the building of human relationships.
