Become the most effective version of yourself in communicating with clients and coworkers by finding and engaging your confidence muscles and developing your listening powers. Personal branding meets interpersonal communication in this program designed to boost your confidence and refine the critical soft skills we all need.
We’ve been told time and again that soft skills are important for our success. And we all assume we have them. But are you exercising your soft skills so they can keep growing along with you?
Join the Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA as we begin 2023 with a “soft skill workout” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, at Ridglea Country Club in Fort Worth. Executive coach and TEDx Speaker Caytie Langford will help you discover and engage your confidence muscles and learn how they impact your soft skills. TCU Communication Studies Department Chair Melissa Schroeder will teach you how to use the often neglected but essential soft skill of listening in order to boost your interpersonal effectiveness. Altogether, you will walk away better equipped to be successful in your communications with clients, colleagues and coworkers.
