Hosted by the University of Nebraska (NU) System, Employee Learning Week (Oct. 16-20) shines a spotlight on professional development. Each campus will present a topic in a virtual training session for employees on all campuses to share.

"How to Have Engaging and Productive Conversations"

Hosted by NU Office of the President | Opens Oct. 16


From 9 to 10 A.M. on Bridge | Register

Instructor: Colleen Huls


Your new mantra should be “By the end of this conversation, I will learn something new!” Humans are generally great at talking, but what about listening? Great relationships require a balance between the two because bad communication leads to bad relationships. With this self-paced course, you’ll take a deeper dive into the art of conversing with someone using techniques like actively listening, being brief, asking good questions, and relinquishing control of the conversation. Be prepared to be amazed!
