Communicating effectively in business today is an essential element of success for every professional. Business communication skills leverage knowledge and expertise to create powerful professionals equipped to positively influence business and achieve optimum outcomes. Our Business Communication courses are designed to help professionals at all levels develop strong business communication skills in three key areas:
- Business Presentations
- Written Business Communications
- Client and Stakeholder Interviewing
More and more, professionals and consultants must conduct interviews with clients and stakeholders to inform and build alignment around important initiatives and projects. Many are frustrated with the outcome.
The Connected Interviewer helps professionals hone their interviewing skills and enrich the interview experience for both them and those they interview. This one-day workshop provides consultants with the capabilities to move interviewing from a static, one-way interaction, to a dynamic form of communication. This helps them gain the information and understanding they need for important initiatives, while achieving greater connection and engagement with the clients, stakeholders, and others they interview.
