Communicate for Impact: Using "People Styles" to Hone Your Communication Skills
Tuesday, January 17, 2012 6:30 pm-8:30 pm

Registration for this event is now closed.

Advance registration is required as spaces are limited.

Women of color attorneys have reported that they participate in client pitches, but can be excluded from the resulting client work, that they feel uncomfortable when negotiating their compensation, and that claiming their fair share of credit for performing or originating work is sometimes an uphill battle.

As you think of your career and compensation, what would it be like to achieve a communication breakthrough with the decision makers and colleagues at your organization?

In this interactive presentation, Colette Ellis will present a simple communication model that will increase the quality and productivity of your interactions, and improve your ability to communicate your unique talents and contributions. You'll begin to recognize how you come across to others by discovering your People Style - and how to determine which styles are most common at your workplace. You'll also learn how to relate less defensively when engaging in challenging conversations, and how to flex your communication style to achieve more positive outcomes.

SPEAKER: Colette Ellis, Principal, InStep Consulting LLC

SPONSORING/CO-SPONSORING COMMITTEE: Women in the Profession Committee, Angela Rella, Chair

This Workshop is the first of a five-part series in 2012 focused on skills development, presented by the Subcommittee for Women of Color.
