If you can't communicate, it's like
winking at a girl in the dark: Nothing happens. You can have all the
brainpower in the world, but you've got to be able to transmit it. - Warren
This workshop is the first one in a series of three. They all focus on getting you ready to communicate effectively in the 21st century. This workshop is foundational: it means that you will be able to use the learning’s right after the workshop when you give a presentation, post a message online or send an email.
Communication is at the heart of everything in life. It is so natural that we often don’t give it a second thought, until we realise that we can learn to write a cover letter that will land us a job interview, give a project update that will convince decision-makers, send emails people can understand and positively react to. Communicating with impact requires careful planning, a real methodology and excellent execution. Everybody can learn to ‘communicate with a purpose’.
We will work on crafting sharp, clear and engaging messages that can totally change the way you engage with others. Through this work you will get increased self-confidence as your communication will get more effective.
During this training we will
Share the Connection principle, which will be your roadmap in all your future communication
Talk about objectives, audiences, messages, channels, timing and personal communication style
Practice the learning’s in group
This training is most relevant for people with a technical background (engineers, scientists, IT professionals etc) who are not used to using communication strategically. If you think that ‘facts speak for themselves’, if you find it difficult to communicate with people who don’t have your background, if you don’t know how to best use communication to achieve your goals, this training will help you bridge the gap.
By the end of the training you will:
Have learnt how to use communication in a strategic way to convince and engage others when you write and speak
Have been introduced to a structured model you can use every time you want to communicate with great results
Have used the model on a relevant topic
Duration: ½ day
