Who would you like to influence more effectively: Your manager? Co-workers? Employees? Key customers? Suppliers?

You will learn to create rapport, ask directly, listen effectively, and use proven interpersonal skills to improve your effectiveness with individuals and with groups.
The speed of everything has changed. Are your time management skills up to the challenge?
Do you put off more today than you can ever accomplish tomorrow...exhaust yourself by 4:00 p.m. with only a fraction of your work is done...see yourself as a decision-maker who never gets around to making decisions...dread the next business meeting—or worse, going back to your desk to see what voice mails and emails await you? If you’re doing more and enjoying it less, it’s time to get out of the time trap and back to productive management! This seminar gives you practical techniques for controlling time and making it a manageable resource.
