Learn to Communicate More Strategically

June 10 @ 12:00 pm - June 17 @ 2:00 pm

Learn to communicate more effectively in the workplace with this two-part workshop.

Learn to Communicate More Strategically

NOTE: As this workshop spans two sessions, please select tickets for both June 10th and June 17th when registering.

You communicate multiple times every day. And sometimes people on the receiving end respond as you’d like. But sometimes they don’t. This workshop will help you increase your effectiveness in the workplace and other related situations. We break down the components of the process and provide proven strategies to communicate more strategically. You arrive at the workshop having identified areas in which you want to become more impactful, and then learn and practice applying a strategic frame and research-supported approaches relevant to a wide range of personal and professional communication situations.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Apply a strategic frame to enhance your effectiveness in high-stakes communication situations
  • Critically assess your own and others’ communications to identify and eliminate obstacles to success
  • Increase the likelihood your communications will be seen and elicit the desired response

This course includes:

  • A pre-workshop survey inviting participants to identify communication situations relevant to them, which allows us to tailor the training to their needs
  • Two 2-hour online sessions spaced one week apart to provide an opportunity to reflect on and apply strategies shared
  • Session 1 introduces the tools and strategies, and includes two practical exercises
  • Session 2 gives each participant the opportunity to test the tools on a communication situation of their choice
  • An hour of homework in between the sessions to apply the tools and draft a written or verbal message to test with the cohort

Don’t forget to select tickets for both June 10th and June 17th when registering in order to attend both sessions.
