Course Description:

The two words 'information' and 'communication' are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through. Sydney J. Harris

Effective communication is about more than just exchanging information. It is about understanding the emotion and intentions behind the information. It is about being able to clearly convey a message. It is about listening to your clients or customers in a way that gains the full meaning of what is being said, builds trust, and makes the other person feel heard and understood.

  • Learn how and why communication fails
  • Identify 3 learning style preferences

  • Understand how to communicate in a group setting so all preferences hear the same message
