I Am Honest! (And Kind.)

The Fine Art of Communicating with Tact, Professionalism, and Diplomacy

Honesty sounds good, doesn’t it? We have all been taught that honesty is the best policy. But is it? Does that work in the real world? Can you be honest and tactful, professional, and diplomatic all at the same time? Absolutely!

What is tactful communication? What does it look like and what does it sound like? What does it mean to maintain professionalism? How do we practice diplomacy in the most difficult and dicey situations? How can I be honest and achieve results?

In this dynamic, high energy, and highly interactive session the audience will get answers to these questions and so much more! Julie will entertain them and educate them! They will leave with solid, real world techniques they can apply immediately to improve their results in those difficult and dicey situations.

The audience will learn:

To accurately define tact, professionalism, and diplomacy

Understand the importance of perception and your credibility suit of armor

How to communicate tactfully in the most difficult and dicey situation.
