Title: "But that's not what you meant!
Description: “But that’s not what you meant!” 

Mutual understanding is at the heart of moving parties closer together to reach a consensus.  Yet, strong emotions, powerlessness, hearing --- but not listening, and other factors get in the way of understanding.  This interactive brown bag event will include communication skills you can add to your professional toolbelt.  We’ll look at ways to foster openness, trust, and mutual understanding.
