Description

Class Experience

Students will learn:

* Why confrontational communication most often leads to a "no"
* The difference between self-advocacy and confrontation
* How to master the 5-step process for effectively communicating what you need
* The end result of fictional situations -- once with confrontation and once by using the 5-step process
I received my B.A. in Communication with a minor in business from the University of Missouri. I have master's certificates in content marketing, social media marketing, internet marketing, and email marketing. 

I spent 17 years in public relations, marketing, and communications -- the last 10 of which were running my own agency. During that time, I mainly trained clients how to speak effectively with members of the media (reporters, journalists, bloggers, etc.).

I have run communications-related internship programs for high school and college students since 2005. This makes me extremely adept at teaching, guiding, and mentoring the next generation of communicators. I was also the chaperone for the International Science and Engineering Fair for several years and put in charge of fine-tuning the high schooler's verbal presentations.

In 2015, I started a podcast dedicated to empowering women to be their own self-advocates. While my podcast started as a hobby, it's now become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 2 million downloads across 150 countries around the world.

In 2018, I closed my public relations agency and became a coach for women who have difficulty communicating with their medical providers. I help them advocate for themselves by following my 5-step process for effective communication. I am also in the process of writing a book about a similar topic for a large, traditional publisher.

Please note that this is a communication class for girls, which is my background. They will learn about effective communication through fictional examples. It is not meant to diagnose or treat any issues that would require a licensed therapist. I teach from the perspective of a coach and mentor. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
