Effective Communications Skills - The Foundation for all Leadership

The Communication Workshop stream will delve into the understanding and use of key strategies necessary to communicate the right message to colleagues and senior management. Identify your own strengths and weaknesses, stress triggers and roadblocks in interpersonal communications; and use that information to interact effectively. Even though everyone is unique, there are recognizable clues that will enable you to sense what a person may think or do in certain situations, and ultimately gain an understanding of their actions.

Objectives:

  • Communicate effectively with others.
  • Gain an understanding of people's actions and reactions.
