The Communication Habit by one of today’s leading experts in business communication, Laura Katen, shows you how and provides a proactive roadmap for navigating some of the most common and awkward workplace situations.

Structured communication often highlights that you are organized, clear on your message and prepared. There’s also more of a freedom and flow when you don’t have to worry about reciting your message word-for-word. If you are so scripted, there’s no spontaneity.

KATEN CONSULTING is proud to have become a WEB Certified business.

What that means:

Governor Cuomo launched the MWBE Certification Campaign to encourage minority and women business owners to certify with the State and take advantage of current and upcoming State procurement opportunities and billions of dollars in State procurement opportunities.
Under the Governor’s leadership, the State has certified more than 4,300 MWBEs and recertified more than 3,600 MWBEs. In 2014, the Governor pledged to increase MWBE certification by an additional 2,000 businesses, a goal that the State exceeded in January 2016. As a result, the number of State-certified firms has more than doubled in just five years. Keeping with his commitment to MWBEs and the small business community, Governor Cuomo has pledged to certify another 2,000 firms over the next two years.

Laura Katen was recently quoted in Kari Paul’s Marketwatch editorial on progressive gift-giving ideas.
