Resource Type:On-Demand/Downloadable
Training Level:Reference

If a plan without action is just a dream, then  a message poorly communicated is just words. 

  •     Very few skills have as great an impact on determining a leader/manager’s success as how well they communicate their vision and plans.  Being a great communicator isn’t about being the world’s greatest speaker or writer; being a great communicator is about delivering your message in the words and manner that are best matched to your audience, whether they are employees, clients, volunteers, board members or donors.   The Effective Communication workshop will teach you how to look at all of your messages to make sure they are having the maximum impact.


    Learning Objectives:

    ·       Be able to define effective communication

    ·       Learn how to assess your intended audiences’ “listening styles”

    ·       Identify the right words, method, timing and person to deliver your message

    ·       Gain an understanding of how your word choice influences how your message is received

    ·       Be able to recognize and overcome the barriers to effective communication
    ·     Examine ways to encourage feedback (both giving and receiving)
