Communication is the key to engaging and retaining workforce, running effective meetings, delivering presentations, and supporting collaborations. 

The U.S. is currently in a workforce engagement crisis - according to Gallup, for the first year in more than a decade, the percentage of engaged workers in the U.S. declined down to 34%.  To solve today's most pressing people issues and strategies, HR professionals must address this dilemma.  This session will demonstrate just how critical communication is in engaging and retaining an organization's workforce, running effective meetings, delivering compelling presentations, and ensuring productive collaborations.  A 2019 Harvard Study also showed that, '90% admitted to daydreaming in meetings.'  This session holds the key to engagement and will demonstrate the secret communication techniques leaders and professional performers have used for centuries to influence emotion to motivate action.

Learning Objectives:
