We are all expected to communicate effectively in the workplace and to maintain good working relationship; but often our communication is not clear, and our working relationships are less than productive.
During this 2-day interactive course, delegates will identify their communication skills challenges and its impact on understanding. Delegates will learn to improve their listening skills and get a better understanding of the importance of non-verbal and body language in communication and tone of voice. Other aspects of communication that are covered include written communication, e-mail etiquette and strategies for dealing with miscommunication and misunderstanding.
