One of the most common communication errors made in today’s workplace is
confusing talking with real communication.  One way to avoid this is to
better understand the skill of framing through which we define the meaning
of “the situation here and now.” Are we in a “crisis”? Is this situation
merely “a cause for concern” or should we be on “red-alert”?  Am I
appreciating all the stakeholders impacted?  When we connect with others
through our framing, we shape reality and if we “manage meaning” when
others can’t, we emerge as leaders.  Come hear Professor Gail Fairhurst,
author of “The Power of Framing” and a leading expert in organizational
communications, in a moderated discussion on communications skills
professionals need to embrace to be seen as leaders.  A limited number of
Professor Fairhurst’s book will be available for those wishing to purchase
a signed copy.
