BBC Friday 15 June 2018 – Mastering Conversational Intelligence® w/ Johanna Munson

Join us this sunny spring BBC Friday for a fascinating  conversation on Conversational Intelligence®, with Johanna Munson, Skipping Stones CommunicationsHow you are perceived, how your conversation is received, determines what you can achieve. By engaging your conversational skills, you and your business can experience fresh pathways to success.

Mastering the art of conversation is how great leaders build trust, spearhead innovation, navigate challenges, and generate growth. Recent research from Dr. Judith E. Glaser, author and founder of Conversational Intelligence®, is considered to be a whole new kind of “smart talk,” one that opens up a wealth of opportunities. It’s different from both “Intellectual Intelligence” and “Emotional Intelligence,” because you’re expressing yourself in a universal language that’s accessible to anyone, in any situation.

Johanna will give a brief introduction to some of the central tenets of Conversational Intelligence® and then invite your incubation talents to shine! skippingstoneslifecoach.com. Johanna on linkedin.com.

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
