Effective communication, influence without authority featured in December SBDC workshops

The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is offering workshops in December for small business owners, executive team members, and supervisors in any organization.

“Effective Communication” on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 1 and 2, is instructed by entrepreneur, speaker, and communication expert Terra Fletcher. In this two-day workshop participants will learn how nonverbal communication and understanding impacts their effectiveness. Fundamentals of communication, persuasiveness, and constructive feedback techniques will also be covered.

“Lead (Influence) without Authority” on Tuesday, December 8, will teach participants that you do not need a title to have effective influence up, down, and across their organizations. Specifically, styles of influence, default responses, and difficult conversations will be covered. Jamie Schramm, MBA, an employee development coach in several different industries, will facilitate the workshop.

Both workshops earn credit toward a certificate in Supervisory Leadership.

Workshops start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. at the Advance Business & Manufacturing Center at 2701 Larsen Road in Green Bay and include lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments. For more information, a downloadable brochure, registration deadlines and fees, and to register for the SBDC’s workforce development workshops and certificate programs, such as supervisory leadership and project management, go to SBDC “Upcoming Programs.” You can also email or call (920) 496-2117.
