Communication skills - an introduction


Change your personal and professional life for the better with improved communication skills.

Evidence shows that interpersonal skills, such as being an effective communicator, are the greatest predictor of success amongst professionals of a similar background and IQ. Yet communication skills are rarely, if ever, taught as part of our schooling or higher education. These skills can, however, be learnt. Start to learn them by attending this course.

Who should attend?
This course will benefit anyone who sometimes struggles to get their message across and wishes to become a better communicator. 

What you can gain
Learn and develop communication skills to become more successful, resourceful and influential, including the importance of good questioning and listening skills and how to put what you've learnt into practice.

Programme outline
By the end of the course delegates should be able to:

  •  communicate more effectively
  •  gain new information through effective questioning techniques
  •  pick up on hidden messages
  •  actively listen for feelings as well as meaning
  •  use techniques to check and build the understanding of others
  •  increase your confidence when communicating face-to-face
  •  create a Personal Development Plan to address real life communication challenges and growth opportunities.

The course starts at 9.30am. Lunch and refreshments are included.
