  1. Communicating with Confidence – Streaming Video

    The Long Term Living Training Institute is pleased to present a free streaming video training event on September 11, 2014 at 9:00 am.  This workshop will cover essential –– and often overlooked –– skills in presenting information, listening actively, and remembering names and faces to enhance rapport and relationships with consumers and co-workers.  It provides fundamental principles of communication and memory along with short, interactive exercises to allow participants to practice the skills and apply their learning on the job. These skills apply in virtually any communication setting, and can be improved with practice immediately, and over an entire career.
