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.

Course Overview - Communication Skills Training

We split this course into two parts: AM and PM: The morning session is about developing your communication skills so that you always make a positive impression in the minds of others. The afternoon session is about developing your communication skills to more 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 we ask you, what do you want to gain from this training? We discuss the three main characteristics of effective communication: Clarity, Reason, Positive emotion.

Impression management: Everything you say creates an impression in the minds of others. We discuss how you can communicate in ways that leave the right impression. Clarity means communicating in a way that allows people to clearly understand what you mean. Reason means giving good reasons for everything you say. Positivity means, having positive intentions towards others.

We then move on in the afternoon - how to handle negative situations in a positive way. We discuss the various ways people respond to negative situations; sometimes angrily, sometimes upset and sometimes reasonably.

We want to respond without anger or upset and instead treat all people and problems “according to the principles of reason”. We learn how to take the negative emotions out of situations. 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 five 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
