Effective communication is critical for successful supervision and leadership. Learn what good communication looks like and sounds like. Identify the communication styles of others and yourself. Beyond the words we use, what do people see in our eyes, gestures and body language? Do we command attention, motivate and engage our audience?

Participants in this workshop will gain confidence in extemporaneous delivery and formal presentations. Enhance communication skills and build more productive working relationships for yourself and your organization. Learn by doing in this activity-filled seminar. Participants will have an opportunity to practice the skills they learn. Yes, you’ll get to give a short speech!

  • Learn to use greater vocal range, how to control mannerisms and reduce nerves
  • Apply presentation skills to small group situations
  • Learn to motivate and engage an audience
