Whether it’s interacting with a donor, a regulator, a co-worker, a supervisor or a supervisee, the most successful people are the best communicators. That includes both the messages you deliver as well as how you listen and react to others.

While we’re busy honing our specific job skills, we often neglect the skill set that can truly make a difference in our success, and the success of our organization – our ability to say what we mean, understand what others are conveying to us and ensure that others receive our messages as intended.

Forbes magazine cited “strong communication skills” as the #2 attribute people need to succeed at work, indicating that solid communication isn’t a “soft skill” but rather an essential one for successful interactions with both internal and external audiences.

This class will challenge you to recognize your communication style and how you give and receive messages, as you focus on specific ways to improve your own communication skills.

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
