SOUTH HOLLAND, IL– The South Suburban College Business & Career Institute (BCI) presents a Breakfast with BCI Workshop entitled, Competent Communication: Keys to Building and Sustaining Professional Relationships Parts 2 & 3. BCI is encouraging attendees to benefit from these excellent workshops even if they didn’t attend Part 1 which addressed several communication topics. Part 2 takes place March 25th and Part 3 will take place on April 29th. All workshops will be held in the South Suburban College MB Financial Bank Business Suite from 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon (check-in and continental breakfast to begin at 8:30 a.m.).

Relationships drive the success in our businesses and our communication skills in turn, drive our relationships. When communication is poorly executed, relationships suffer, putting our business in jeopardy. The Business & Career Institute can teach you the skills to strengthen your communication approach, starting with these upcoming workshops:

Part 2 – Wednesday, March 25th
BCI’s own Alexandra Glumac will address the critical skill of Emotional Intelligence (EI)–our ability to use emotions intelligently and appropriately in different situations. She will cover Four Functions of EI, the Five Competencies of EI and several proven strategies to promote and strengthen EI. Strong EI skills significantly increase the likelihood of business success.

Part 3 – Wednesday, April 29th
Author/Speaker Mary Erlain will facilitate this workshop, focusing on the five generations employed in the American workforce, each with a set of differing experiences and styles. She will discuss modes of communication, management, work ethic, technology, buying styles and advertising. This workshop encourages employees to explore ways to improve their communication by taking into account our generational diversity that exists in business today.
