Communicate with Impact

Are you truly reaching people? And are your clients, colleagues and employees truly reaching you? Communicate with Impact is an inspiring learning program, dedicated to improve your communication skills and enhance your impact.

To have impact in your organization, insight in your own communication is top-priority. It’s knowing your communication patterns. Knowledge of your own qualities as a communicator helps you being creative in order to influence and persuade others.

The path to reaching people effectively involves knowing your own reference sets. Acknowledging the selective way in which you observe others is also a requirement. You’ll study non-verbal signs such as posture and gestures. Becoming sensitive to communication levels is another part of the enterprise. You’ll practice evaluating the content of communication; the emotion behind it; the relationship between you and the communicator; as well as the true intention behind the message.

At the end of the training

  • You have challenged your personal and professional development
  • You have gained insight and skills to be more effective in the workplace
  • You have transferred your learning to the workplace

In this program we create a learning environment in which you can experience the effect of your communication within the safety of the learning group. Your individual cases are the guideline of the program, in which you search together for ways to perfect the impact of your communication.

You experiment with new communication styles in the present. You can count on becoming more aware of how you come across to people. By analyzing, honing and expanding your communication style, you’ll explore undiscovered aspects of yourself. You’ll learn together by practicing, experiencing and reflecting on your behavior. Handouts on communication theories will be facilitated when necessary to increase awareness.
