Communicating with Leadership: Strategies and Techniques for the Rising Professional
Registration is now available for our IN-PERSON September 12, 2023, Future Automotive Expert (FAE) event. Join AIAG and Plexus International's Jeremy Hazel to explore “Communicating with Leadership: Strategies and Techniques for the Rising Professional.”
As current professionals move toward retirement and younger candidates begin to fill their roles, there is a substantial mismatch in new professionals' communication skills, and the needs of organizations and leaders that employ them. In short, these individuals are not offered enough guidance on how to best communicate and be a vital part of leading their organizations as their careers progress.
Intended for up-and-coming professionals, this event will focus on analyzing management and how they operate, the concept of "interested parties" and how their perceptions are created, how to generate a common language with management, and more.
This early evening session includes a light dinner and networking opportunities. Click here to find out more.
