Day 2: Communication

November 6, 11:30AM-5:00PM

Masterful Communications

Does your workplace have employees that hear but don’t listen or speak but don’t really say anything? Communication is more than learning how to listen or choose words wisely, and this is even truer in the workplace where ineffective communication or miscommunication can be costly. This program drills down to the root of interpersonal communication by giving participants an opportunity to learn about their own Social Style, which has been a keystone of impacting workplace performance since the 1960s. 

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify the benefits of effective communication and the costs associated with miscommunication or non-communication.

  •  Understand and explain the four basic behavioral styles and the benefits and challenges of each.

  • Demonstrate positive non-verbal behaviors to reinforce the intent of verbal messages.

  • Learn the power of open ended questions to build relationships and effectively communicate.

  • Identify techniques for better listening skills when dealing with challenging speakers.
