How we speak and participate in discussions both one-on-one and in larger groups, influences how we are perceived. In these 90-minute sessions, we will examine social and cultural factors that affect linguistic styles common in our professional lives. Additionally, we will look at ways to adjust our speaking patterns in order to effectively communicate.

Objectives

In these interactive sessions, we will:

  • Identify aspects of linguistic style
