Effective communications skills create positive interactions with others.

This course builds on Assertiveness techniques you will have learned in our Essential Communication Skills or Assertiveness in the Workplace courses. There is a brief revision component of these two courses to make sure everyone is starting at the same level. We then move into mastery, refining skills to enhance your communication impact.

You will develop techniques to deal with an array of characters from those who don’t share much of themselves to those who act passive-aggressively and those who are openly aggressive. Further, you will examine different refinements to working up (more senior staff), down (sub-ordinate staff), across (colleagues) and outside (customers and vendors) your organisation.

Further, you will learn how to build greater credibility in your communications and gain tactics to buy thinking time when put under pressure.
