We all communicate everyday, but do our messages come across clearly? Pitch, tone and body language are just a few of the factors you need to consider, in addition to the words spoken. In a perfect world everyone would understand what we said all of the time. Unfortunately, sometimes there is a misunderstanding between what we say and how that is understood.

Personalities need to be considered when communicating. This course explores dynamics which can lead to frustration when communicating with others. You will have a greater understanding of how to adapt your communications to obtain the best results when working with colleagues.

Whether it is at work or at home, everyone can improve their communication skills. The skills and understanding developed will make you a more efficient communicator in all aspects of your life. However you communicate, this course will give you something that you can apply to every situation.
