      INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS
      Most everything is handled “on the fly” these days, given the heavy workload that most of us manage these days. When you also consider that many of us also work on cross-functional project teams as well, the situation is ripe for misunderstandings and incomplete information. These circumstances take their toll on our relationships with co-workers and serve to undermine our ability to complete our tasks effectively.
      Through a review of the key elements that yield effective interactions, and with an application of these elements in real life situations, participants will be able to sharpen their ability to communicate on multiple levels of understanding -- even when time is brief.

      Participants will learn:
      • Putting all of our senses to work: reading nonverbal and verbal cues
      • Designing messages that are both clear and concise; being short, sweet and to the point
      • Closing the loop through reflective listening and laser-probing questions or “Did I hear what I thought I heard?”
      • Giving feedback that is genuine and effective
      • Chipping away at knee-jerk assumptions -- the single biggest “communication-buster”
      • Designing and delivering a Communications Plan that yields better understanding throughout the organization
