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 in person event with Plexus International's Jeremy Hazel 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.
A light dinner will be provided during the presentation, along with opportunities to network at the end of the event.
