On Tuesday, October 25th from 11:30am to 1:00pm there will be a Power Lunch at the Riverview Inn, 50 College Street. Please join us as we welcome Amanda Johns, who will give valuable insight to tackling communication barriers between different generations in the workplace.
Through careful research and meticulous study, Amanda has identified and categorized gender similarities in verbal and non-verbal communication, the underlying meaning behind our words, the nuances of dress and appearance, and the overall structure of how people act, react, buy and sell just a little bit differently. Her often humorous recap brings piercing clarity and empowering insights into understanding and relating to the subtle differences between how genders and generations think and act in the business world.
