Ever talk with someone that agrees with everything you're saying then walks away and does something completely different? That's incredibly frustrating and confusing (and you're not alone). A Stanford University study found that 9 out of 10 conversations miss the mark. What if there was a scientific explanation for why verbal agreement does not translate to action?

In this engaging talk, Ariana Friedlander will introduce participants to Conversational Intelligence. This groundbreaking, scientific framework will provide women with a deeper understanding of why conversations often don't have the intended impact. She will also offer tangible tools for women to have more effective conversations at home and work!

Attendees will leave with a basic understanding of the neuroscience of conversation!
