Monday June 23, 2014 Terra L. Fletcher presented Effective Communication at the Green Bay campus of the University of Wisconsin. Academic and support staff attended the two-hour workshop.
About 20 people attended including UWGB’s communications professor. What an asset to have her in class!
Fletcher enjoyed presenting at UWGB. Participants were used to doing activities, answering questions, and openly sharing. One woman was so moved by the encouragement to continue to improve our communication and make sure our needs are met that she cried!
As promised, here are some of the citations and resources mentioned in class.
