LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Bucknell University will offer the workshop, "You didn't just say that! avoiding communication pitfalls," Thursday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to noon in the SBDC Education Center, Room 207 of the Chamberlin Building on Fifth Street in Lewisburg.
Rhonda Campbell, founder and owner of Jarhon Communications, will lead the workshop, discussing the common pitfalls of communication, how to communicate to get what you want, how perception impacts your message, what gets in the way of listening, and why what you say isn't nearly as important as how you say it.
Campbell has more than 20 years of communication experience, having worked with individuals in state and local government, manufacturing, health care, banking, insurance and many other industries.
