UWL Students

UWL HR is excited to invite you to participate in our upcoming session on Dealing With the Elephant in The Room.

Dealing with the Elephant in the Room is a communications development seminar in which participants learn the skills to talk to anyone about anything. Participants begin by identifying the uncomfortable issues and realties they face at work and at home. Then they learn how to confront such issues with tact, empathy and clarity. This seminar helps increase productivity and improve relationships by proactively addressing problems, conflicts and misunderstandings.
