What makes the Verbal Communication course unique?

Communication is a key part of getting through life, be it at school, university, work or even socially, so developing strong skills in this area is crucial. People often assume that being a good communicator is just about being confident, and that’s not always the case. Something which the Verbal Communication course does very well is show that strong communication isn’t just about being the most confident person in the room. It’s about being clear and concise in what you’re saying and really listening to the other person in the conversation.

The course teaches techniques to help deal with real-world situations like having difficult conversations, which can be tricky no matter how good a communicator you are. A great activity from the course is the Communication Styles activity, which covers four different types of people and how they communicate. Understanding other people is a powerful tool in being able to adapt your own communication style to make sure you have positive and effective interactions with those around you.

Who is the course perfect for?

The Verbal Communication course is perfect for anyone who wants to develop their confidence, understand what good communication looks like and use communication to build good relationships with the people around them.
