How well an individual communicates can influence how others view their work, performance, and prospects for career mobility.  In a dynamic working environment, it is not surprising that misunderstandings occur.

Attendees must complete the corresponding online CBL prior to enrolling in the course. To register for the sessions, visit ulearn.miami.edu and follow the instructions to logon. For more information, call 305-243-3090 or 305-284-5110.
