As a result, we’re far more effective and productive in working together." —Frannie Matthews, President & CEO, Colorado Technology Association

Each year, the Fortune 500 lose $160 billion to communication errors made by professionals and leaders. These losses occur foremost because individuals lack the ability to remain in the moment, have never learned how to listen intelligently, and don’t know how to target their message for the greatest receptivity.
While coding is important, even in tech the top-five skills for promotion to leadership all depend upon the core skills of listening, speaking, and presence. As the technology industry grows and becomes integrated into each and every business, tech professionals are called upon more and more to communicate the ins and outs of the technology. In addition, salespeople, marketers, and other non-technical roles must also be able to communicate their product and vision effectively. Complex technical ideas can lend themselves to misunderstanding. Your long-term success and the success of your team depends on the ability to effectively listen and confidently communicate your ideas.
Here’s the good news — You and your team can level up! CTA is partnering with communication experts The Moxy Lab on a workshop that will transform the way you understand yourself and your workplace. Learn your listening habits and develop skills to recognize your biases. Listen to and speak with others more effectively. With awareness of your listening habits, capture a wider range of information and, in the process, inspire confidence, receptivity, and trust — the basis of influence.
