**A Communication workshop for Modern Managers with JD Schramm (Stanford's Graduate School of Business)**
## About this event
Have you ever left a meeting or conversation feeling like "I so could have communicated that better!" Don't beat yourself up, all of us have had that feeling. As we prepare to enter our third year of remote work we wanted to take some time to review some tips and gain new insights around how to communicate effectively both when in person or on zoom.
Join us on Friday February 25 from 4 to 5 when JD Schramm leads a highly interactive session on how to Communicate with Greater Mastery. Participants will learn:
1. The value of AIM-ing your communication
2. When to speak up and when to hold off
3. How to maximize our impact in virtual settings
4. How to craft emails to get the desired impact
