Communication Skills for Women

Feb 17, 15 • Featured News, NewsNo Comments

How to achieve confidence, credibility, and composure in the workplace

What makes you clam up, shut down, or fall apart?

Nearly all work involves interaction and communication with others. Clear, effective communication — between individuals, within teams, and among departments — is a vital part of any successful organization.

Developed specifically to meet the needs of today’s working woman, this communication training offers valuable insights you can use to enhance your communication style while earning the respect and cooperation of others. You’ll learn to speak up with composure and confidence. We’ll help you unearth self-defeating attitudes and replace them with positive expectations. You’ll get tips to help you deal with trembling hands, “butterflies,” and other nervous symptoms.

This communication skills course provides targeted training in how to:

  • Use the techniques of influence and persuasion to build productive and rewarding relationships with all kinds of people
  • Control your emotions and stay composed and effective under pressure
  • Overcome fears of public speaking and voice your opinions readily
  • Handle high-stakes situations, mistakes, and crises with confidence

Spend a day looking at how you interact with others. At this communication skills course, you’ll discover the simple yet profound changes you can make to add impact to your communication.

Do you cringe at the thought of speaking in front of others?

  • Do you stifle your suggestions at department meetings, instead of impressing your colleagues with your intelligence and insight?
  • Do you rush clumsily through your agenda during appointments with clients, rather than taking the time to showcase your hard work?
  • Do you avoid making presentations at all costs, when you could be wowing people with your knowledge and professionalism?

If so, you’re passing up golden opportunities to highlight your dedication and expertise. Attend this communication training and gain the confidence and skills you need to stay composed under pressure and express yourself in a way that gets results.
