Communication professionals are used to helping our employers and clients understand “Communication with a big C” – things like communication strategy and tactical skills, how to develop plans and measure their impact.

But what really matters – in business and in life – is “small-c communication,” the everyday, organic communication that takes place between co-workers, bosses and employees, family members and friends. There is tremendous power in “small-c communication” if we understand what it is and how to use it effectively.

In this program, you will discover the importance of “small-c communication,” how to use it to break down barriers and how to shut down the internal editors that often keep us from taking advantage of it.
