You gain a deeper understanding of how others perceive you and learn techniques to minimise miscommunication.

Throughout the course, you gain practical insights, exercise your communication skills and feel the impact right away. In just one day, you become a master of listening, asking probing questions and giving feedback. The course covers verbal as well as non-verbal communication topics. It also includes topics like intonation, projection and body language.

The following subjects are covered:

Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.
