Communication Training

Course Overview

Fact: Many staff members struggle to apply the basic principles of communication, leading to misunderstanding and time wastage.

Have you ever wondered why it seems so difficult to talk with some people and so easy to talk with others? Can you recall an occasion where you met someone for the first time and immediately liked that person? Something about the individual made you feel comfortable. A major goal of this workshop is to help you understand the impact your communication skills have on other people, and how improving these skills can make it easier for you to get along in the workplace.

This workshop includes dynamic trainee/trainer interactions and discussions, written and oral exercises, voice recordings, case studies, reflection, quizzes and a workbook for each participant to take back to the workplace.

Target Audience

All individuals and professionals who would like to strengthen their communication and collaboration skills and work confidently with others.
