Everyday, we are interacting with people of vastly different cultures, beliefs and experiences, so how can we get it right? We need to become aware of our own communication style, to learn from every situation, every person we interact with and every intuition we have.

This highly interactive course concentrates on both the process of (how) and the interpersonal influences on (why) we communicate.  From first impressions, establishing rapport to understanding the many motivational influences on individual behaviour, self awareness will be raised and techniques developed to ensure that the outcome sought is achieved, decision making is improved and positive relationships built and maintained.
