                                                Thinking and behavioral tendencies impact communication.  Knowing ourselves and learning to
                                                ‘read’ others expands our ability to connect authentically and relate effectively.  Come gain insight
                                                and tools in this interactive session!  Authentic interactions require knowledge, courage and
                                                intentionality.  Knowing and understanding ourselves – and others - expands our ability to
                                                communicate clearly and connect authentically.  This interactive session provides insight and
                                                tools that work.
