About this event

Does it seem like everyone today speaks a different language? Between millennials, boomers, LGBTQ, East Coast - West Coast, how do you convey your message in the way they will understand you.

Developing the skills to communicate across differences decreases the possibility of being misunderstood (or unintentionally offensive) and increases opportunities for relationship (and referral) development.

This can result in attracting better talent. Retaining staff and reducing recruiting and training costs.

As sales professionals, we understand the wrong communication style could lead to lost opportunities. That is why this session focuses on how to communicate your message across gender, generation, and geography.

It’s understanding how the client views a successful outcome and speaking in terms that relevant to them to further inspire trust.

Who this is for:

Community Professionals, Sales Leadership, Established and New Associates, Customer Service Associates
