Prospanica Webinar Series: Advanced Business Communications Badge
Prospanica and the University of Dallas have partnered to bring you Advanced Business Communications for Leaders as this year’s Prospanica Summer Webinar Series. Join University of Dallas experts
to learn how to become a well versed communicator that can handle diverse settings
Our world has significantly changed over the past year. Most meetings are conducted
in a digital platform and consist of varying audiences; as professionals we are expected
to remain effective communicators regardless of these constraints. This new mix of
boundary spanning communications calls for competency in: accurately communicating
while engaging within the media, being effective in virtual settings, acknowledging
the role of emotions, handling conflictive communications, and recognizing and communicating
with adults that require a more complex communication technique. A well versed communicator
that can handle such diverse settings and audiences is key in business and in life.
Communications in Risk Management
Presenter: Laura Munoz, Ph.D.
Risk management is the ongoing process of forecasting and evaluation of risks and
threats posed to organizations. Yet, while an organization might actively manage its
risks if its communication efforts fail, then rumors, misinformation, and other challenges
can occur. Communication in risk management will focus on covering the risk management
cycle, the essential elements of effective risk communication, and best practices
that can be implemented by attendees. The webinar briefly oversees what risk management
is and addresses benefits that it provides.
Communications for Individuals with Complex Needs (Part 1): Communication is a two-way street: What to do when wires get crossed
Presenter: Rich Miller, DBA
When we communicate with others, we need to be aware of their communication preferences,
but what happens when that is not obvious. People that you deal with every day are
referred to as neuroatypical and their communication preferences are almost as if
you are speaking another language to them. This webinar will provide the insights
that a neuroatypical person has learned in being able to better communicate with the
typical person and it will provide you with valuable insights that can improve your
relationships with many people.
Communications for Individuals with Complex Needs (Part 2): Leading with collaboration
- Engaging in appropriate and effective communication and conflict management practices
in the workplace
Presenter: Cara Jacocks, Ph.D.
In this session we will define conflict management from a communication perspective
and identify pathways and types of workplace conflict. We will also discuss conflict
management styles and strategies, and how to select the most effective strategy given
the context of the conflict. All of these skills direct attendees on how to be competent
communicators and conflict managers in the workplace by focusing on appropriate and
effective communication and conflict management strategies.
Emotions in Communications
Presenter: LaCoya Williams
Feelings play a major role in communication. Being aware of your emotions, or the
ability to understand feelings, can help when communicating with other people. Join
us as we explore how emotions directly influence the way we communicate. You will
learn tools and techniques on being emotionally self-aware, how to notice and identify
the feelings of others, so we can better communicate with those around us.
