Communication Essentials

Category: Aci Code Requirements And Specifications For Concrete Design, Construction And Repair Training

Course Description

This course increases the confidence of everyone to cope effectively in any communication challenge, including presenting in public, handling difficult people and conflict situations.

We communicate all the time, yet rarely think about it. We often communicate without being fully aware of the messages we are really sending. Success depends on being understood, understanding others and communicating well together. Building healthy working relationships is vital to business success. A major part of this is understanding your own personal communication style, how we can (and do!) influence other people, and how you use your style to create effective and rewarding business relationships.
