Leadership Workshops
  1. It’s Not What You Say, But How You Say It. Speaking to the Emotions and Aspirations of Others

    Presenter:Dr. Gary Adams and Elil Yuvarajan, UHCL Counseling Services

    Description: Many students of effective leadership have argued that communication is key. In addition, many relationship specialists have suggested that communication is at the core of any successful interpersonal relationship, whether that of parents, partner/spouse, children or colleagues at work. This workshop will focus on developing healthy, effective relationships with others, especially in the workplace, through the development of always improving communication.

What we say and how we say it can make all the difference!
