Interpersonal Communication Skills

The single biggest problem with communication
is the illusion that it has taken place
– George Bernard Shaw

One Day


Businesses do not always recognise the costs caused by miscommunication.
In this unique business climate the need to communicate effectively is critical to ensure that information and messages are passed on clearly and correctly. We also need to recognise that our colleagues may be feeling under pressure as well. So understanding the need to modify how we interact with one another will help prevent potential conflict. This workshop will also help improve one-to-one communication skills such as coaching, counselling and conflict handling.
