Talk Like a Girl: The Unique Communication Style of Women—When it Works and When it Doesn’t.

Talk Like a Girl: The Unique Communication Style of Women—When it Works and When it Doesn’t.

October 28, 2014 (6:30-8:30 p.m.).

Ragan Theater, Sorensen Center, Utah Valley University.

Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series.

From childhood, girls and women adopt specific communication patterns and techniques that often serve them very well…to a point. Numerous studies suggest that, partly due to their communication styles, women make better managers and more collaborative team members. Yet, those same communication patterns that work so well in some situations keep women from getting hired, getting promoted, or even getting heard. Dr. Emily Hoffman, Master Facilitator of Crucial Conversations, will help us understand the unique attributes of female communication, identify our own communication patterns, and provide skills for adapting our communication style to help us increase our impact in our families, schools, communities, and workplaces. The event will conclude (last 45 minutes) with light refreshments as attendees move into small group dialogues at tables. Come, listen, learn, and add your voice to this important conversation! This event is open to all women 16 years of age or older and all those who influence girls and women.
