    Start Time: 12:30pm to 3:30pm
  • Location: Dunedin
  • Venue: Otago Chamber of Commerce, Level 3, 442 Moray Place

Effective Communicators are skilled in what they say and how they say it.

The ability to communicate effectively with others is an important asset.  It’s not a gift given at birth; it’s a tangible skill that any motivated individual given the right training and support can improve.

Communication is a complex skill that’s critical to personal and professional success. It should be viewed as a lifelong learning opportunity. 
In this workshop, we’ll look at many aspects of communication, including the critical skill of listening. 

The goal of this workshop is not to have you leave as a Super Communicator. Instead, we want to give you enough information, practice, tips, and support to help you continue your lifelong journey toward better communication both inside and outside the workplace. 

By the end of the workshop we aim for the following learning outcomes:

  • To have an understanding of the 4 different styles of communication and your dominant style
  • To have developed skills to communicate effectively across the 4 different communication styles
  • To have built on existing questioning skills; asking high yield, effective questions
  • To have further developed your active listening skills
  • To deepen your understanding of, and be able to demonstrate, appropriate non-verbal communication skills
