As our ability to pay attention in a world of distractions vanishes, it’s no wonder that our ability to be heard and understood—to convey our messages—is also threatened. Whether working with our teams and customers or communicating with our families and friends, it is increasingly difficult to break through the digital devices that get in the way of communication. We’re often participating in multiple conversations at once. As a result, our ability to be socially present with an audience requires an intentional approach. Join Dr. Turner in this session to learn to:

  • Identify challenges created by digital devices and create strategies for success;
  •  Isolate strategies for engaging the attention of others based on the needs of the context, the message and the relationship; and
  • Create an intentional approach to constructing our social presence in our conversations.
