Embracing change is critical for instructors. Leveraging new technologies and communication avenues will keep you relevant without feeling overwhelmed. Attendees will work to enhance their interactive style and ability to decode signals, especially when working with diverse groups of attendees. Attendees will learn how to design an approach that suits different generations and improve their overall effectiveness by incorporating instruction/presentation styles that ensure the content and delivery are aligned with the evolving marketplace.

Specifically, we’ll cover fundamentals regarding change, personality types, body language, gender communication differences, identifying and minding the gap between generations, and learner engagement.
