Title: Turn your Words into Gold

Speaker: Tiziana Barrow

Turning your words into gold start with your thoughts, which results in what you say and turn into what you do. This presentation will help you understand the connection of how your thoughts turn into spoken words and ultimately actions. These skills can be applied to every part of your daily and career life. Within a few hours you will become aware of and practice the skills to influence others, recognize how people see us and understand power dynamics. These are some of the most important skills needed for effective management and leadership.
