MEMBERS ONLY : Persuading Away Conflicts

Thursday, April 15, 2004

At work and in our personal lives, disagreements are inevitable. When they arise, you don’t have to be a doormat, a steamroller, or some bizarre hybrid of the two. Come learn from persuasion skills expert Margaret Anderson how to use improved persuasion skills to defuse animosity and reach consensus.

Meeting Notes: Take advantage of your membership and join us for lunch on TAX DAY for this seminar on Persuasion. Due to the nature of this learning experience, attendance is strictly limited to 30 WITI members only. Register early to ensure your ability to take advantage of this valuable learning experience.
