Teaching executives is both challenging and rewarding.  A professor has a relatively short time to win over a class and convince them that the content that she has will immediately help them contribute positively to their bottom line.  The topic of communication particularly requires that applied and tool-based approach.  Executives should leave every one of my classes with specific strategies and tools for approaching the way they communicate at work and at home.  That is my primary goal and my means of assessing myself.
