 September – Body language and communication in the workplace -Steph Holloway, Elemental Potential

Tuesday 12 September – What you say and how you say it can make or break workplace relationships

Steph is a communication specialist and body language expert. She has been traveling New Zealand for four years and worked with over 1,200 businesses and 4,000 people and we’re priviliged to have Steph speak at our 2nd BizBites event.

This enlightening talk will explain just how much body language plays a part in every day communication and where you miss the clues. The ideal communication in the workplace (and life in general) is compassionate assertiveness according to Steph.

Steph believes that the optimum compassionate assertive communication is a trifecta of three components:

  1. Clear, concise and concrete communication
  2. Decoding in and sending out directional body language
  3. Asking the next obvious question©

Want communication with no ripple effects? Communication that looks for the win-win, not the winner. This is it. Book now for this Biz Bytes event.

Steph is in Wanaka with public events on the weekend of 9th and 10th of September, and available for corporate bookings. Go to upcoming events to check out her workshops on offer while she’s here and book. Her latest book Ping Pong – Compassionate Assertiveness in Action is available in the online shop.
