Communication Skills

Mr. Philip Thomas

Short Summary: 

To communicate effectively with other people, not only we need to be self-aware, but also know the impact of our style on other people. We need to use a range of skills in different situations based on different personalities. This highly practical course helps delegates to understand their strength and develop their own communication style through many group exercises and interactive content.

Course Description: 

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

 - George Bernard Shaw - 

This course is designed to help individuals to communicate assertively and positively to get maximum results. 

Humans are social entities and as a result a lot of time is spent every day communicating with others. It is essential to know how to communicate effectively to get results. Any performance improvement here will directly lead to benefits for your team, your job and your personal life. 

It is well known that an essential quality of a good team is their efficient communication style. Communication is a skill and as a result it can be learned and mastered by persistent practice. 

This interactive course focuses on all aspects of communication. You will learn about assertiveness, self-awareness, empathy, confidence, body language, questioning styles, emotional intelligence and many related topics. The course is full of exercises to give you hands on experience on mastering the art of communication. The course is designed to accommodate two types of delegates  with optional content that are provided. Some contents are ideal for delegates who know each other and are perhaps working as a team and want to enhance their inter-communication skills. A difference set of optional content is ideal for delegates who don’t know each other and are looking forward to improve their general communication skills with colleagues, clients, managers and employees.
