Effective Communications in the Workplace

Communicating clearly and effectively - both verbally (face-to-face and over the telephone) and in written form via e-mails, letters and reports etc. is a vital part of every ITC professional's skill-set. This one-day workshop will help you to deal effectively, comfortably and confidently with the full range of people you come into contact with, be they colleagues, customers or suppliers. In addition, it will give you some vital checklists that will help you to present your thoughts politely, clearly and concisely in letters and reports as well as verbally. Through exercises, discussion, role-plays and feedback you will develop your own confident and assertive personal style. This workshop forms day one of the RSM 'Inter-personal Skills for IT Professionals' programme, but may also be attended in isolation.

This course is available 'on demand' (minimum 2 students) for public presentations or for one-company, on-site presentations.
