It's more important than ever that we communicate clearly and authentically as the world navigates the pandemic. Would you like to strengthen your leadership and communication skills?

The Emergence Leadership Academy (ELA) offers organizational leaders, activists, spiritual warriors, and visionaries a unique development journey.

Join us on April 28th from 7pm to 830pm for a Free Class led by program director, Rev. Dr. Ryan Polly, to help you with communication strategies. During this 90 minute class, you will learn and work with a simple approach to communication that decreases the potential for conflict or misunderstandings and increases your influence.

You will walk away with some insights and a strategy for communicating, as well as an understanding about what ELA is all about.

This is an experiential class so come prepared to explore something you have recently communicated that didn’t go well or with something you’d like to communicate but have been avoiding. You’ll be applying the concept to your real situation so that you can leave feeling prepared.
