The Santa Barbara Executive Roundtable (SABER) will present Deborah Naish, founder of Naish Partners, a business coaching and consulting firm, for a talk on ways to improve Conversation Intelligence to accelerate business growth.

The seminar will be 8-10 a.m. Thursday, March 8, at The University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St.

Conversations are not just a way of sharing information, Naish said. They trigger actual changes in the brain that impact how people think and feel, and the actions they take.

Attendees will learn about the neuroscience of conversations so they can shift how they experience their work, engage with others, get business, and grow personally and professionally.

Naish will discuss Conversational Intelligence, or C-IQ, which is designed to strengthen relationships, transform teams, accelerate business growth and shape the future of organizations for mutual success.

She will share tools audience members can start using immediately at work and at home.

Cost to attend the seminar is $35 with RSVP until the day before the event, and $40 at the door. Checks and cash will be accepted at the door.

To register and pay in advance by check, make check out to SABER and mail in care of SBVA, 509 Coronado Drive, Goleta, CA 93117. Contact SABER Santa Barbara, 698-1121 or email [email protected]

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
