2019 Spring Scientific Symposium Preliminary Program 

Thursday, May 30
3 - 5 pm: Leadership Development Workshop: Communicating with Confidence & Working with Different Personalities

This communication skills workshop will offer practical techniques to successfully communicate with confidence. Learn to identify positive non-verbal and verbal behaviors to optimize a speaker’s influence and hold attention. We will discuss common barriers to communication that may stop you from conveying or receiving the right message. Participants will identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.

The workshop will examine effective techniques for solid delivery skills, engaging an audience, presenting with visuals, articulating complex data, and keeping a group on task, time, and topic. The workshop will strengthen your communication competencies using facilitated discussions, coaching, and behavioral modeling of successful presenters.

At the end of the workshop, the participants will have mastered how to communicate with confidence, articulate key points, and think on their feet during a Q&A session.

Learn to adapt your leadership style to different personalities;
Discuss the principle of creating influence;
Build critical communication skills to increase confidence and credibility.
Fine-tune their communication skills by using solid delivery skills;
Practice thinking on their feet and articulating "key messages" succinctly;
Create a conversational approach to the delivery of data;
