Communication Skills for College Students
This will be a fun and informative workshop! Healthy communication is critical and essential skills are rarely taught to college students. Help your son or daughter get a leg up by leveraging insights from their own 20-page custom Everything DiSC profile.
Students will reflect upon their own personality styles and preferences, then learn to empathize with others who have different styles. Our Interaction Guide helps students recognize the personality style of people they meet to better understand how to communicate more effectively and persuasively.
Class size is limited to 12 students. Tickets can be purchase via Eventbrite.
