Key business areas - training,--> learning and performance

Our training courses cover training that leads to learning which leads to improved performance:

Interpersonal and communication skills are essential for all aspects of our business and private lives

This course is for individuals, team leaders and managers who need to and want to ensure that they are maximising their ability to communicate and work with others, avoiding conflict and disharmony.

The program allows you to identify and adapt your communication style. Your ability to listen and comprehend the intention/message behind the words used by others will be improved. You will be able to identify ways to talk with other people in a manner that relates to them and their particular style. You will detect possible conflict and minimise its impact.

The course is needs based. You cover the communication and interpersonal skills techniques and ideas, but a substantial component involves practical exercises that let you focus on the management of issues most important to you.
