Dr Audrey Nelson speaks in Broomfield

Approximately 50 internal and external men and women turned out on a snowy Valentines Day in Colorado to attend Dr. Audrey Nelson's seminar "He Speaks, She Speaks, What Different Things They Say." Dr. Audrey Nelson is a mother of two (she calls them her own gender research lab) and holds a B.A., M.A. and Ph.D in Communications. She discussed topics like the seven MOST asked questions regarding gender communication differences, the "Split Ear Phenomena," nonverbal messages, and touched on some communication practices to use within our virtual environment. Her award-winning research is cited in such books as "More Power to You and Communication Between the Sexes." You can learn more about Dr. Audrey Nelson by visiting her website at www.audreynelson.com. Personally, I walked away with a better understanding of how to communicate more effectively with men and women not only in my professional life but in my personal life as well. By understanding the differences in communication styles and knowing that neither way of communication is good or bad,  I am able to be more patient and understanding when miscommunication does happens.

A big thanks to our Professional Development Committee Chairs, Jamie Hughes and Carol Neustadter, for putting this together!  We hope to have more of these great professional development events in the future, so be on the look out for more from Women@Sun-Colorado!

Thank You, Nicole Eisele, Co-Chair of Women@Sun-Colorado
