Good communication skills are essential in today’s workplace. Whether it’s communication with tact and diplomacy, managing up, dealing with difficult people, understanding people’s communication styles, using emotional intelligence or listening to others. Knowing how to communicate can mean the difference between success and failure. How do we communicate effectively in tough moments, to design norms that encourage cohesion and resilience, and to create cultures of creativity, inclusiveness, and innovation.

Come join us for part two of IIDA NE's Speaker Series: Communicating During Collaboration, where the first half hour will be instructor-led learning followed by a 45-minute panel discussion with selected IIDA NE members from Boston, Providence and Hartford.

One Bill at a Time is a campaign to raise awareness and resources for Interior Design Advocacy in the New England Region. By adding three dollars to each event hosted by IIDA NE, we remind ourselves that advancing our profession is the core mission of our Organizations and, with small individual contributions throughout our community, we can make a large impact*.

*At the conclusion of each calendar year, all funds raised will be distributed to New England states with active advocacy initiatives in direct proportion to the percent of Chapter membership residing in each state. We dedicate this campaign to the individuals that achieved interior design legislation in New England states and paved the way for the future of our profession, One Bill at a Time.
