Instructor for this course

There are seven key approaches to ensuring that your message is clear, concise, reaches its target audience, has its desired impact, builds your reputation, represents the passion you bring to the situation, and connects you with your audience.  These approaches also have the added value of reducing anxiety of speaking in public, helping remove “writer’s block,” and helping you efficiently communicate and build trust.

Communication is now central in this age of social media where there is so much communication that most of it gets lost in the “noise” that is out there.  Short, effective emails must be the standard in the future, but even those will be replaced by shorter text messages.

This course also covers how to give directions so they are followed and how to get your message through the right channels so they are most effective.  Every manager, CEO, accountant, nonprofit leader, and consultant always needs to improve how they communicate. This course provides some key tools to help achieve these goals.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore how to build trust and relationships through communication.
  • Identify what is holding you back from being a more effective communicator.
  • Discover what other people are looking for in communication.
  • Recognize whether your communication has been successful in obtaining the result you wanted from the communication.
