The College of Staten Island’s Division of Student Affairs/Office of Student Life is proud to present its Sixth Annual CSI Leadership Conference, “#BetterCommunication #BetterLeadership,” on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 in the CSI Center for the Arts (Building 1P) from 9:00am to 4:30pm. The event is open to CSI and CUNY students, staff, and faculty, and the greater Staten Island community, and will provide an opportunity for our community to meet, network, and share ideas about the essential relationship between communication and leadership. You may register online.

Inappropriate communication is often cited as the number-one mistake that leaders make when working with others.  With Facebook and other social media sites coming into existence and evolving rapidly in just a couple of years, it’s not easy for users to grasp the unspoken rules of the social interactions within. Too often, leaders either don’t communicate; over-communicate; communicate inappropriately through outbursts, anger, or blaming; or simply don’t communicate clearly. Regardless of our profession, we need the ability to work and communicate effectively with others. 

The conference will be an inspiring, full-day event that will provide the opportunity for participants to increase their understanding of the important role that communication has in the leadership process, enhance their skills so that they may foster and inspire more effective collaboration, and offer valuable insights that can be used to enhance their communication style while earning the respect and cooperation of others. 

The conference is free to CSI/CUNY students, faculty, and staff, and $15 for other participants. For more information about the conference, please contact the Office of Student Life at 718.982.3088 or  Don’t forget to register.
