Communication skills

This is one of our most popular courses because it takes the content from four courses we teach and packs them into a single day’s training.

The four courses we cover in the one day are:

  • Meeting mastery
  • High performance leadership

We will look at time robbers, such as email and discuss how to introduce a better system of email management which works for your company.
Learn what to do when you are juggling multiple tasks and the work keeps coming and coming and coming! We will explore how to manage stress and how to prioritise. And we will leave you with a personal plan of action which you can take back to the office and begin working on.

Meetings are the number one cause of time loss, stress and inefficiency in companies. In this course, we will teach you how to run meetings which will increase your value to your team and organisation enormously.

In my experience helping managers with all aspects of efficiency and effectiveness, I’ve seen 8 simple factors which unlock the door to running high payback meetings, three of which are more important than all the rest combined.
