Effective Communication: The Key to Success

Communication skills are vital to a supervisor's success. It's not just the ability to handle the technical aspects of a job, nor the willingness to work hard that counts, but the ability to transmit information, ideas, and enthusiasm to others. It's knowing how to listen, talk, and establish rapport with people -- how to guide and motivate them to perform desired actions. When communication is effective you benefit by saving time, money, and experiencing more productive relationships. Learn and apply concepts and techniques to improve your interpersonal communication skills with managers, employees, coworkers, and customers. A variety of experiential activities provide hands-on skill building to help you become a proficient communicator right away.
