CDW: Influencing Effective Employee Communication

Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMCentral Daylight Time


Are you a visionary? Influencer? Or coach? If you have a mix of communication styles, join the club! From senior management to team managers, professionals communicate on different levels of effectiveness and engagement. Research shows that effective leaders encourage dialogue, develop opinions and enhance corporate responsibility. Maintaining this “ahead of the curve” philosophy can be a daunting process, especially when an employee communications strategy falls through the cracks. The key is to enable consistency of the message and to provide open and honest truths when sharing positive or negative company-wide news. During this seminar, you will explore these topics through a mini-lecture, best practices and industry case studies. 

Veronica S. Appleton, PhD, is an award-winning scholar-practitioner with a passion for creativity and innovation. Appleton is a faculty member in the College of Communication with a focus on organizational and intercultural communications. Her research intersects understanding human behavior and culture building, with special interests in women of color in leadership and storytelling as an intentional tool for employee engagement.

Before the webinar, DePaul University will provide a brief overview of the degree programs available to CDW coworkers, including corporate partner cohorts.

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
