COURSE OVERVIEW & CONTENT:
"Words have the power to create, to inspire, and to transform. Choose them wisely."
We interact with others on daily basis and our communications can influence different aspects of our lives. Knowing how to communicate well can have a significant impact on an individual’s success and so it pays to constantly train on it and aim to improve your performance.
This course follows on from Effective Communication Strategies and aims to expand deeper into many sources of miscommunication. It provides several easy-to-use soft skills techniques that can be employed in establishing rapport with others, strengthening relationships and avoiding common conversational traps. In particular, the course covers areas such as probing and understanding other people’s perceptions, understanding intentions and their impact, taking responsibility and avoiding blame.
During this course delegates learn to manage their emotions better so that these emotions don’t leak or burst into conversations at the wrong moment. Techniques are provided to manage difficult conversations and to avoid getting trapped in a psychological game going back and forth on certain points rather than moving forward to focus on underlying issues or concerns.
All of the techniques explored in the courses are thought using several examples. Many example conversations of poor communication are provided and delegates are encouraged to analyse them. This is then followed by in-depth training on why and how these conversations fail and what can be done to avoid them. This is subsequently followed by improved examples so delegates can see exactly how to use the techniques and what to expect of them. Delegates then participate in several exercises to master these skills. Exercises are carefully designed to help the delegates memorise these techniques during the course and learn to apply them in real-time in realistic situations encountered in the real world.
Participants must complete Effective Communication Strategies course before taking this workshop.
