Interpersonal and communication skills
With communications playing a central role in the modern organisation today, management and staff need to equip themselves with the tools to become better communicators with stakeholders and among themselves. This programme is designed to benefit people from all levels in the organisation. We identify the vital aspects of human communication within the context of a dynamic organisation. We evaluate the benefits of effective communication, uncover the key skills required and develop methods to assess its effectiveness. The course has a practical focus by which delegates have ample time to assess their current strategies and to compare them against best practices.
