How easy would it be if everyone agreed on everything?
Communication has always been an important skill, and today’s professionals need to be more cross-functional than ever.
The ability to communicate and influence your stakeholders means you can affect rapid change and agile approaches. In the workplace, we communicate to present ideas, seek clarification, influence others, propose solutions and form relationships.
This course focuses on how managers can use initiative and judgement to organise themselves and plan, co-ordinate, and evaluate the work of their teams.
This Communicate with Influence short course will improve your skills and influence in the following areas:
- Communication fundamentals and cross-cultural considerations.
- How to captivate your audience by delivering presentations that are interesting and convey messages in a powerful way.
