Level Up: Communication Skills for Tech Professionals

Hosted by CTA in partnership with The Moxy Lab, Level Up: Communication Skills for Tech Professionals is a four-part course focused on Listening Intelligence, Finding your Message, Honing Your Message and Presenting With Presence. The courses include facilitated sessions, workbooks, and study guides. Two additional small-group workshops will allow you to practice and perfect your new skills with individual coaching.

While coding is important, even in tech the top-five skills for promotion to leadership all depend upon the core skills of listening, speaking, and presence. As the technology industry grows and becomes integrated into each and every business, tech professionals are called upon more and more to communicate the ins and outs of the technology. Salespeople, marketers and other non-technical roles must also be able to communicate their product and vision effectively.  

The four-part course will be taught once per week over four consecutive weeks beginning September 27, 2019.
