- Articulation of the role of trust in communication.
- Discussion of various communication styles and their differences.
- Presentation of effective communication tools and strategies.
This event is offered at no cost to postdoctoral scholars. However, participants are expected to complete a self-assessment by StrengthsQuest™ before the event and to bring the results of their self-assessment to the workshop on Dec. 16. The fee for the assessment will be paid by the Postdoctoral Affairs Office. See registration form for details.
