Connecting coaches, entrepreneurs, and leaders toward a greater way to change the world. ______________________________________ Online Zoom Presentation from 6:00 -7:30 PM ______________________________________ The presentation, Removing Barriers to Effective Communication was inspired by the current social environment and is designed for various audiences. It focuses on connecting better by communicating more clearly, concisely, and often. This presentation offers Toya’s Top 10 Tips and serves as a resource to help people gain a better understanding of do’s and don’ts, as well as subtle behaviors that have the potential to lead to communication breakdowns. Participants will be reminded of the importance of applying "humanity" and "compassion" in their communication style versus communicating only to complete transactions. Additionally, the presentation serves to remind participants of their roles and responsibilities to ensure that they have adequately communicated and confirmed they achieved what they set out to do. ______________________________________ Toya L.
