Lake George Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau Meeting

Thursday, March 18
Meeting Begins at 9 a.m.
Past Event

Not Bad, Just Different — It’s so easy to get along with people who think just like we do. However, getting along with those who process information differently can present major challenges to the best of us. From employees to customers to vendors…you name it…frustration and/or misinterpretation of someone else’s words or actions can destroy the best environment and impact relationships. Participants will walk away with a better understanding and appreciation for the strengths of others and how to more effectively communicate with them.
