Communication is one of the most essential skills for individuals at every level of an organization, from entry-level through senior management. As we learn to communicate more effectively, we create and maintain a more open and productive work environment.  Effective communication can help enhance engagement, foster understanding, and build constructive relationships with co-workers, donors, volunteers, board members, and supervisors/supervisees.    

This class will expand your understanding of communication and teach you how to put this knowledge into practice. You’ll learn about different communication styles and how you can communicate and work more effectively with others, including those who have different approaches to communication, are from a different generation, or are resistant to change/new ideas. We’ll also provide a framework for how to engage in difficult conversations to address challenges and pursue opportunities to improve your outcomes.

SKU: N/A Categories: , Audience: Everyone connected with your organization can benefit from better understanding of their communications skills and styles and those of others with whom they communicate. Certificate Programs: Nonprofit Management
