Aud. Jean Monnet (Parkstraat 51)
Although convinced of our advice for effective communication, many people feel they will not be allowed to use it in practice. Beside “nobody else does it in this way”, the classic assertions to justify resistance to change include “it is not compatible with our template” and “my group leader won’t let me do so”. While such utterances are sometimes no more than excuses for laziness or low self-confidence, the barriers are often real.
Isn’t it high time we stop tolerating counterproductive habits and start doing something about the suboptimal status quo? Building on over 25 years of experience, Jean-luc Doumont will expose three main barriers to effective communication, propose explanations for their existence, and offer strategies to overcome them, thus helping you unleash your full potential.
An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-luc is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems, his book about “effective communication for rational minds”
Whether you’re a student, researcher, professional, or boss, join the crusade and… change your world!
