The art of communication

Personal Development

The art of communication

Training overview

At your work you communicate daily with a diversity of people; colleagues, customers, project members, managers and many more. To gather information, to make your point, to influence, to cooperate. Most of the time you do so easily, sometimes it’s challenging…
The way you communicate (or don’t) is driven by your skills and mindset. This has great influence on your work experience and the customers satisfaction. You are the ‘business card’ of yourself and the company, so let’s work on ‘the art of communication’!

Target audience

Do you recognize the following statements?

  • Sometimes my point is not coming across in a conversation or a meeting.
  • I not always as effective in my communication as I would like to be.
  • When I’m convinced of my point, I find it hard to listen to other perspectives and possibilities.
  • When I listen to somebody, I tend to think at the same time. And the moment I think, I seem to stop really listening.
  • For me it’s hard to give constructive feedback and receive feedback to or from colleagues: either I skip it, I’m too harsh / aggressive or too defensive.
  • I would like to know more about (and how to reflect on) my way of professional communication.

And? Did you recognize yourself in (some of) the statements? Then this training addresses just what you need to become a more effective and convincing communicator!
