INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Communication skills are developed and may be enhanced or improved with increased knowledge and practice. During interpersonal communication, there is message sending and message receiving. This can be conducted using both direct and indirect methods.

This workshop introduces foundational knowledge and skills of interpersonal communication. Participants receive an overview of the communication process, explore common communication pitfalls, assess their preferred communication style(s), and learn and practice a variety of strategies for improving interpersonal communication in the workplace.

LOST IN TRANSLATION: Navigating Intercultural Communication in the Workplace

While having a diverse workforce offers numerous advantages, cultural differences can contribute to misunderstandings, conflict and discord. An understanding of one's own culture and that of others allows people to work together more effectively.  This course provides a fundamental framework that helps to recognize the factors and influences of culture on communication and identify skills to improve intercultural communication. Participants gain insights into the value of effectively communicating with people from diverse cultures and learn strategies for resolving differences for better relationships and increased productivity at work.

You can register for this training class HERE. Join us on Tuesday, July 25, from 9AM to NOON in PMEC, Rm 144.
