We are well into COVID and some businesses have reopened, but there are still many people working virtually. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, I am happy to welcome my friend and Communication Expert, Lindsay Lapaquette who shares some great advice on keeping the lines of communication open when we can’t be together.
Lindsay Lapaquette, M.Sc.(A) works with organizations who want to invest in elevating team performance by refining leadership communication skills. Lindsay’s background as a former Speech-Language Pathologist, specialized in working with clients with social interaction challenges, brings a unique perspective that helps leaders and organizations get to the root of complex communication issues so they can save time, money and sanity.

Lindsay’s approach has been profoundly influenced by her work with First Nations organizations, her experience as a parent to two children with pervasive mental health challenges, and the premature loss of both of her parents. These experiences have taught Lindsay great lessons about the power of excellent people skills that extend well beyond her professional expertise.
