business communication training courses
Wouldn’t it be great if besides having the wonderful ideas you hired your personnel for, they were also effective communicators too? Having a great idea is all fine and well, but if you are unable to tell people about it, or listen to constructive criticism, then what’s the point? At Paralingo Language Consultants we are passionate about helping people communicate better with those around them. We are also committed to giving our clients the tools to do so. We do this with the help of our business communication training courses.
In the work place, communication skills are increasingly viewed as important assets among employees and team members throughout the world of business. Simply having great technical skills is no longer sufficient. Increasingly, companies want good communicators among their staff too.
Who is this course aimed at?
We work with our clients to build on their team members’ core business communication skills. This means strengthening their communication and interpersonal skills so they can be as effective team members as possible.
Course Contents & Objectives
Communication and Listening Skills: Oral communication and listening skills are extremely important in the workplace and the world of business. We help our clients and their team members work on conveying their message verbally, clearly and coherently and to listen to information in a meaningful way.
Through exercises, role plays and scenarios, such as communicating with coworkers, telephone conversations, meetings etc. we work through any issues and problems participants might be facing and provide the tools to speak clearly and listen with confidence.
Written Communication: Written communications often stay with us far longer than other means of communication. For this reason, having professional, clear and concise writing is essential.
We look at a range of written materials, such as emails, letters, reports and project management documents. The objective we work towards is to write in a professional way, expressing ideas in a simple and clear manner.
Presentation Skills: Presentations are a core part of the world of business. Every day millions of presentations are given across the globe. However, there are many pitfalls that can make the experience of giving a presentation less than appealing.
We work with participants on techniques and methods to control nerves during presentations, speak clearly and confidently and keep audiences involved and invested in the presentation. We also offer help with slides and visual aids – less can often be more!
