Communication-The Language of Leadership

Many organizations focus on technical skills as all-important to success in the workplace. Yet strong interpersonal skills are essentially equally essential in transforming individual contributors into exceptional performers who have a greater impact in their roles. This foundation course provides individuals with a powerful set of interaction skills that enables them to communicate more effectively with colleagues and customers and, in the process, build trust, strengthen partnerships and achieve desired results.

The leader must determine the exact objectives to be accomplished. This class will cover the keys to meeting productivity, including the valuable role they play in leading it effectively.
