Advanced Communications Skills

The importance of Effective Communication in the workplace is discussed and explored through discussion and some interactive activities. Participants will explore the importance of oral and written communications skills and assertive communications skills, and listening skills. We will empower participants to become more effective communicators by using the skills identified in the Characteristics of Self-Empowerment to enhance their interpersonal communications on the job through effective listening skills.
