What is the Lancaster Chamber's Roundtable Program?
Roundtables foster meaningful peer-to-peer connection and discussion in an invigorating and confidential environment. Roundtables are designed to encourage participants to exchange insight, offer feedback, and express challenges they're facing in their position or organization while cultivating a valuable network. Roundtable sessions include the option to host a presenter or educational component at meetings to introduce best practices or address relevant issues. Roundtable content discussions are guided by a select group of Co-Chairs in partnership with a Lancaster Chamber staff member.
Effective Organizational Communication
Again and again, communication is identified as an area that needs improvement within organizations. Why is effective communication difficult for so many? Could it be differences in individual communication styles? Or is it the fact that we don’t physically interact with every department or individual within our company or non-profit? Is a lack of organizational clarity and team cohesiveness to blame? How do strained relationships impact communication efforts? This session is designed to address these challenges and identify how you can communicate effectively within your organization, across departments, and amidst differing perspectives.
