With the recent OSU policies regarding COVID-19, we at the Leadership Academy are working diligently to still provide you access to impactful workshops and experiences, though in a modified fashion. The “What’s Your Message” workshop with Sue Galatz on April 29 WILL BE delivered remotely, unless normal activities at OSU have resumed by then.

Wednesday, April 29th| 5:30pm - 6:30pm | Delivered Remotely

Pillar: Purposeful

Effective communication doesn't "just happen"... it's designed.  The majority of this workshop provides the opportunity to explore four questions that unveil your message and intent in a presentation or communication scenario. We'll wrap it up with a framework that pulls your presentation together.  (Note: although we talk about presentations, the best practices apply to all forms of communication). 

Students participating in the workshop should being an example of a message (presentation, meeting, conversation) that they want to communicate.
