Building Bridges – Communications Skills for Business

Great communicators gain the opportunity to do great things. Business grinds to a halt or worse – goes off a cliff – if there is not great communication. In this seminar, we explore the principles of great communication. How do we communicate? Who are we talking to? What do they hear? How do they learn? We discover how to understand our message. Unless we are crystal clear on our content, we will not achieve our objectives. Then we investigate how to package that content in a way that is meaningful. We look at forms of content that help us package the information. The next stage is recognizing our audience for our message. Knowing that individual, group or audience, we plan the delivery of that message in a way that will connect with them. Included is the effective use of social media for business. Finally, we evaluate our communication by measuring the response through feedback and questions. Among the life skills we develop in this seminar is the ability to listen well and reflect back to those in our communication. We also learn about telling jokes and stories too!
