Improve the Bottom Line for Your Business
Communication Must be
Understood and Remembered
Business professionals benefit from learning, enhancing, and practicing Effective Communication skills and strategies. In the words of George Bernard Shaw: The biggest problem with communication is the illusion it has taken place. Learning how to clearly and accurately convey a message reduces misunderstandings and misinterpretations, improves productivity, creativity, and will lead to an increase in the bottom-line.
An important part of being a successful professional is being an effective communicator. Honing your communication skills will impact your earning potential and it will impact the organization’s bottom-line. Being an effective communicator isn’t innate; it is learned and must be practiced. Communication is more than just an exchange of information. It is about learning a skill set; verbal, vocal and non-verbal communication and active and reflective listening. A message is more than your words; it’s how you say them. Only about 7% of your message is your words; the other 93% is non-verbal.
All training sessions use a hands-on, interactive approach. Participants are engaged in the learning process and are provided with opportunities to practice skills being presented and to reflect on their current practices.

“What a great workshop! I learned so much, especially about how to be a more effective listener. I tended to ‘jump to conclusions’ and not really listen to what others were saying. Improving my listening skills is something I’m going to work to improve now that I have learned some strategies.”
