One featured speaker is Debbie Lundberg–Think that having a job means you are “in business”?  Ever wonder how it is that you think you say the same thing as someone else and yet your message is perceived differently?  Do you get the sense that some people do not value time and meeting agendas or know about time commitments and agendas?  The session offers participants the opportunity to look at successes and challenges in their roles, and learn about some back-to-basics for professional behaviors that have either been forgotten or sadly, never introduced.  This is a topic for all levels, interests and effectiveness, for it is a universal message that will be customized to the culture and customs that the group represents.  Tackling Business with Tact participants will participate, and have a refreshed or new approach to business occurrences like email, meetings and other happenings in the workforce.  Learning ways to disagree without offense and consider the others while sharing ideas are some of the expected results from this presentation.
