What is Communication Skills Training?

Communication - Clear, Convincing, Positive

Developing your communication skills is one of the most important things you can do.

Why? Because you need to be able to explain your thoughts, ideas, facts and feelings in such a way that others will clearly understand you, agree with you, and act in accordance with your message.

How many times have misunderstandings and/or poor communication skills been the cause of problems in your organisation?

Mis-communication is the cause of many conflicts, errors and misunderstandings.

Effective Communication may be defined as the accurate transfer of information and emotion from one mind to another. And you need your communication to be: Clear, Logical, Persuasive, Memorable and Inspiring.

All this is made possible by attending this one-day effective communication skills training.

Communication Skills Training Course Overview

This course is split into two modules. The morning session covers developing your communication style, so that you always make a positive impression in the minds of others. The afternoon session is about developing your communication skills, so you are able to effectively handle difficult people and negative situations, in a positive way.

We start the course with a self-assessment of your current communication style, and find out what you want to gain from this training. We discuss the three main characteristics of effective communication: Clarity, Reason, Positive emotion. Everything you say creates an impression in the minds of others; we discuss how you can communicate, so that you leave the right impression. We will discuss the importance of clarity in communication, giving good reasons for your message and positive intentions.

In the afternoon you will learn how to handle negative situations in a positive way. We discuss the various ways people respond to difficult situations. We will show you how to respond, replacing negative emotions and instead treating all people and problems “according to the principles of reason”. You will learn how to present yourself assertively, by managing your language, body language and voice tones. You will have the opportunity to practice your new skills in common conflict scenarios. You will finish the training day by learning how important it is to finish every communication on a positive note.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Improve your communication skills: Become more clear, convincing and persuasive
  • Gain more confidence; present your message with assurance
  • How to specify the exact meaning, so there is no misunderstanding
  • The proper (and improper) use of humour and office banter
  • Handle conflict situations and difficult conversations with the right amount of assertiveness
  • Effective use of body-language gestures and voice tones
  • The proper use of praise, appreciation and thanks: Always leave on a positive note
