NSA-Arizona Living Room Forum
To further enhance and improve a speaker’s career, NSA-Arizona offers monthly Living Room Forums, which are more intimate events featuring industry experts that are held in private homes or businesses. They are the perfect opportunity for attendees to participate in topics of interest while developing the tools and techniques to grow professionally or to improve areas where they have prior experience.
Because LRF is a smaller venue with a more relaxed and casual setting, you will find it offers attendees a higher level of dialogue with more opportunities for questions, conversations, and action-item takeaways ready for implementation.
The LRF is offered exclusively to members and guests of the NSA-Arizona Chapter.

Facilitator: Gloria Petersen
Date: January 24, 2018
Time: 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Ever wish that you could wave a magic wand and everyone would be respectful, civil, and accommodating? Unfortunately, that’s not everyone’s nature. Therefore, it is more important than ever to deal with people, situations, and one’s own behavior with diplomacy, dignity, finesse, tact, and civility, thereby setting the better example. These are powerful “win-win” strategies that serve as the foundation of effective communication. Why? Everyone’s basic need is to be respected, validated, and liked. It’s a new era with new challenges. Gloria will identify how these basic communication tools can aid in a more diplomatic and civil interaction. Then it’s your turn to share your thoughts and experiences.
- Learn “win-win” strategies, the foundation of effective communication
- Understand communication styles for this era of new challenges
- Claim as your own more diplomatic and civil interactions
