Women of the Chamber Luncheon 2/20/2018
Women of the Chamber Luncheon
Join us for the first Women of the Chamber Luncheon of 2018 sponsored by Oakey's. Come enjoy a delicious lunch with your fellow #ChamberChicks as we discuss effective communication with Roanoke Higher Education Authority Executive Director Kay Dunkley.
Let's face it, effective communication is one of the most important components for a positive and peaceful work environment. Good communication helps everyone on your team feel heard and understood. Conversely, ineffective communication brings about opposite results. Ideas fall apart, you and your team are frustrated, unacknowledged and misunderstood. Learn strategies for improved workplace communication as we function with five different generations and deal with cultural diversity challenges.
