Communicate Effectively Under Pressure

Do you have days when you feel like you're communicating with toddlers rather than adults in the workplace? Is the toughest part of your job the 'people bit'?

'Soft skills' like communication are hard, particularly under pressure and conflict is part of life, no matter how much you try to avoid it.

Learn how to navigate tough conversations and better manage yourself under pressure as Leah shares the Five Cs of effective communication and explains why developing your soft skills is essential to personal and career success.

No-one is a perfect communicator; everyone can improve and in this presentation, Leah shows you how.
