CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Panther Speakers series will offer a free webinar, "Problems? Probably Perception," presented by Nichole Johnson, UNI instructor in communication studies. The webinar is scheduled from noon to 12:50 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 16, and is open to the public.

Many communication issues that occur in the workplace have to do with assumptions and negative attribution. We want to know what others are thinking about us, so we often apply our own meaning and experiences to the situation. The problem? We haven't walked a mile in their shoes. This presentation will explain how perception can be "blamed" for many problems in the workplace and tips to improve perception.

Johnson teaches oral communications, public speaking, internships/cooperative education, interpersonal communication and group communication skills.
