​​Communication on Purpose

Aligning meaning with message to maximize impact​


In a world where opportunities to communicate have never been more abundant, an ironic phenomenon has taken place.  The ability to communicate effectively has become more challenging than ever, resulting in lack of trust, disconnection and an inability to successfully collaborate.

The ability to successfully communicate is critical to building strong relationships in the workplace.   These strong relationships, built upon mutual trust and respect, are crucial in meeting and exceeding organizational objectives. In addition, powerful relationships built upon effective communication can improve retention, heighten overall productivity, and increase profitability.

New insights stemming from breakthroughs in neuroscience and social psychology have paved the way for the innovative communications techniques which will be introduced in this interactive workshop.

​What you'll learn

          • The 3 levels of communication, and how to navigate your way to the collaboration-sphere.
          • Establishing the framework for trust using proven communications techniques.
          • Managing difficult conversations, delivering feedback and effective conflict resolution.
          • Strategies for aligning meaning with message for more positive outcomes.

We are proud to have Elizabeth Borelli present this valuable topic. She combines a deep understanding of group dynamics with 15+ years of experience in communications, networking and team building.   Her interactive presentations offer strategies for high-impact communications, resulting in a more collaborative, engaged workplace. 

Elizabeth received her BA in Psychology from Eastern Connecticut State University and has remained an avid learner and teacher in fields spanning from positive communication to personal growth and leadership.  She's a self-published author and a ToastMaster, and is a certified Welcoa Workplace Wellness Expert and a Rockwood Institute certified leader.
