Interpersonal Communication Skills

Interpersonal CommunicationInterpersonal communication skills have been renamed by many in the last few years: Soft Skills. But there’s nothing soft about creating truly motivated employees and teams!

Is your organization dealing with hurt feelings, misunderstandings, or negativity? It might be because people aren’t communicating effectively. Most of us don’t know how to use language to gain a specific result, and we definitely don’t know how to listen.

We don’t always understand someone else’s body language or how to decode mixed messages. We’re wrapped up in our own little world, and we’re often confused and angered by others’ unexpected responses to what we’ve said or written. We blame them; they blame us. Frustration and tension can grow.

It doesn’t have to be that way!

My three-hour, fast-paced Brush Up on Your Interpersonal Communication Skills workshop can help. The tips and techniques shown in this workshop can be used in any type of situation, from work to family. And learning something as simple as how to change negative language to positive can have a huge impact on relationships and responses.

  • The 3 major communication styles and types of responses
  • Barriers to understanding others
