Presented by: Elizabeth Parker, MEd. and Cass Fogelstrom, MS, LSLS Cert. AVEd

Webinar Description:

We all begin meetings and conversations with simple questions. But are we expecting simple, one-word answers, or do we really want to have a more enlightening discussion? In this presentation, we will talk about various question forms and the resulting responses that actually get to the heart of the matter: better communication and better connections.
