What you'll learn in this communication skills training:

Business Context
You’re at a pivotal time in your career and you’re determined to distinguish yourself as a high performer. Smart, hard-working, and passionate – all wonderful traits, but not enough in this competitive marketplace! To excel in today’s rapidly evolving business world, you need a strong set of foundational skills – from clear messaging to open body language, from writing effective emails to embracing feedback. These skills will set you apart and accelerate your success.

Challenge & Solution
Some of the communication habits that you formed in college or early in your career can limit your professional success. Maybe you like to use big words and lots of them rather than getting to the point. Why not distinguish yourself as a thoughtful and curious listener rather than being tied to your smartphone? Instead of writing an email that’s overly direct or confusing, how about writing with substance and style? Invest in your own development when you embrace feedback and welcome mentorship.

Tall order? Not when you practice and master the four pillars of communication.

Exec-Comm’s Simply Said program builds and refines practical soft skills so you can launch, expand, or revitalize your career.

Participant Benefits
After participating in this program, you will:
  • Share clear and concise messages with senior audiences
  • Tell impactful stories
  • Practice heartfelt listening and remain authentic
  • Engage others with open body language
  • Send business emails with confidence
  • Embrace and give feedback
  • Demonstrate your value in meetings
Interactive Learning
You will acquire skills through discussion, group exercises, and instructor coaching. Simply Said: Communicating Better at Work and Beyond will guide classroom activities. A typical half-hour includes 10 minutes of instructor briefing and 20 minutes of practice and skill building.
