To accomplish this, this course addresses the following session objectives:

What You Can Expect During the Course

Expect Thoroughly Trained Trainers: The participants in Effective Communications and Human Relations are made up of both formal and informal leaders. Psychological Safety is emphasized to create a safe place to try out new skills and ideas. The trainers are highly vetted and undergo intense training that is ISO9002 certified to achieve consistent results globally. While part of a global organization, they are connected to your local culture, customs and language.

Expect Breakthroughs: Each time a new skill is introduced, it is practiced the ‘right’ way and coached in the moment before moving it out into your life and work. Once a skill has been tested with clients, team members and others, the group holds itself accountable by reporting back on what did or did not work. This social learning approach makes it possible for everyone to learn from each other’s efforts.  By experiencing a series of successful attempts with positive reinforcement, habits are changed, and new skills are ingrained.
