Program Summary

It may come as a surprise, but communicating with others is the one activity you do more than any other – except for breathing. No doubt there’s plenty of communicating going on in your life. But how effective is it? What results does it get you? Let’s face it, excellent interpersonal communication skills are the most potent career and personal skills you can possess, but just because you have the ability to speak doesn’t mean you are effectively speaking, and your ability to hear doesn’t mean you’re truly hearing what someone else is saying to you.

No matter what your life circumstance, the ability to interact effectively with others can have a major impact on your job performance and on the quality of your relationships with others.

In today’s high-stress, fast-paced world, it is more difficult than ever to take the time to be a good communicator. Simply hearing someone else is not enough; neither is just talking and assuming others immediately understand what you are telling them.

The truth is – old habits are hard to break, and if your communication habits are as unskilled as most people’s are, then there’s a lot of habit-breaking to do. In this program, your clients will learn powerful techniques to be better speakers and listeners by discovering more about: What is it that we are really looking for when we communicate with each other? What gets in the way of our communication and how to overcome it? And what is essential in all communication interactions.

Here’s what your participants will gain during this interactive, educational and fun program:
