Healthy Self for Healthy Communication: Improving Our Effectiveness

Wednesday, February 1, 5:30-7:30 pm
Canary Hotel
31 West Carrillo Street

The post-holiday period is a time for renewed focus. We are at peak performance as communicators when we feel physically, mentally and emotionally fit. We tend to lose focus when we feel overwhelmed, lack energy, lose sleep or have physical complaints. Our expert panel will discuss steps each of us can take to improve our effectiveness. With their guidance, learn how to improve productivity, reduce stress, achieve better work-life balance and enhance joie de vivre.
