Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
According to Fass, the single factor that determines success or failure in big business today is conversation. Great leaders use public and private conversation to send a clear message, cultivate a common worldview, set high standards and reachable goals, and uncover concerns that can undermine an organization. So what conversation are you, as a leader, having with your team? In this interactive course, experienced corporate change consultant Rose Fass explains how too often we think we’re having the same conversation – about “dark chocolate,” for instance – only to be referring to three different things: milk, white, or bittersweet varieties. She shows us how to first establish common ground that leads to an effective discourse for addressing relevance, growth, and scaling: the three most important issues she sees in business today. In a light-hearted and humorous way, Fass shows how leaders at any level can avoid a meltdown and instead drive transformation through the way they communicate in a language that all stakeholders can understand.
This course begins Tuesday, July 22, 2014.
Rose Fass is the author of The Chocolate Conversation: Lead Bittersweet Change, Transform Your Business (Bibliomotion, April 2013).
