Local Workshop Highlights Effective Communication Skills

A workshop held in the Northland aims to help improve communication.

DULUTH, Minn.- Explaining your stance in politics issues can sometimes be frustrating when speaking to individuals with opposing views.

Connection Labs came to Duluth helping Northlanders more effectively frame messages. According to research presented Sunday, responding re-actively during a conversation, creates a smaller chance of being heard.

“We want to fight that, instead of stepping back and saying ‘what is my truth, what is my organization’s truth’ that we want to put in place of that message,” Mighty Individuals CD8 administrator Kandi Geary said. “That gets you all riled up.”

On–goers said with the recent political turmoil being able to effectively voice your views is crucial.
