The Art of Effective Communication


It is not unusual to hear people in companies say, “We have a communication problem here.”  This program will provide methods and information to analyze and improve your own communication and help you help others.  We communicate in many ways:  with our words, tone, eyes, and bodies to name a few.  These are levels of communication called subtext.


The participant will learn to: (1) establish a working definition of communication, (2) review communication models and their key elements, (3) investigate different styles for communicating and, (4) establish how tolerance for disagreement affects effective communication.
