Keynote Presentation: The Power of Understanding People
General Session
Communication expert Dave Mitchell will share the tools to understand each participant’s own unique communication and leadership style. This training event provides an ideal combination of strong content, laugh-out-loud humor and audience interaction. Attendees will discover the cornerstone of high performance and tips for enhancing communication, teamwork and influence. The audience will take a brief, three-minute assessment that will set up Dave’s two sessions and will help attendees understand their own leadership style and how to broaden their effectiveness. In December 2013, a book of the same name was released and was immediately named Editor’s Choice for Best Business Book of the Month by Amazon.
