Employment - Positive & Effective Communication

Ref: C3128621

Do you believe your communication skills could be better? Most of us would answer yes to this question but what can we do? It isn't just about talking, it's about listening, evaluating and responding appropriately, and that's just the verbal part! We will also explore communication and the written word, how it differs depending on what we hope to achieve. Join this supportive group and take some time to learn tips about communicating more effectively.

Course aim

To help you build effective communication skills: looking at the ways in you receive and respond to information in your work place, your studies and everyday life.
