Has something you said or written been misunderstood or misinterpreted? Have you ever ‘got the wrong end of the stick’ and misunderstand something someone has said or written to you?
But, when you're managing multiple projects with limited resources, it's difficult to be strategic. It’s tough to keep your eye on the ball when you’re constantly fighting fires. Yet it's your job as a manager to ensure that your work - and the work of your team - align with your strategic objectives.
We’re communicating all of the time. With our friends, family and colleagues we get it right more often than we get it wrong. But when we do miscommunicate, the results can be disastrous. You might miss out on many opportunities and damage relationships because you’re sending out the wrong signals.
Being good a good communicator then is an important life skill. But in the workplace, if you want to lead, manage and motivate others, you need to master your communication skills.
Join this course and you’ll discover simple strategies that can help you hone your interpersonal communication skills. You will learn how to tackle everyday communication challenges with your colleagues and your boss. You will also better understand how to deal with tricky communication challenges such as dealing with interruptions, respond to critical feedback, and communicating across cultural boundaries.
Communicating effectively is a skill you can improve. With non-demanding, easy to understand and easy-to-apply techniques, this course will help you become a better, more skilled communicator.
