Effective communication is critical for a successful business. It’s the basis of any productive relationship, whether it’s inter-departmental or team communication, or communicating with internal or external stakeholders. In all cases, your people need to be able to communicate effectively and adjust their approach to suit different people’s preferences, moods, priorities, goals and concerns.
Communication skills are also closely related to presentation skills. To speak and present well, your people need to be confident, able to understand and engage their audience, and deliver sleek, well-structured and impactful presentations.
In many cases, my clients ask me to deliver communication and presentation skills training, facilitation and coaching sessions because:
Their people are using a ‘one size fits all’ approach to communication: in other words, they’re communicating with others based on their own preferences, and not taking the behaviour, personality and preferred styles of the other person into account.
They need to improve their skills in the areas of questioning to obtain more information, active listening, identifying and understanding body language and tone, and other factors that influence understanding the person or people they need to work with.
There’s a lack of clarity in communication between people, teams, departments or customers: people aren’t able to get their messages across effectively or deliver clear and relevant information.
Their people need to create and deliver more engaging, relevant, inclusive and – let’s face it – interesting presentations that their audiences will relate to and remember.
