As a leader, the ability to communicate is paramount to achieving great results. Effective communication requires that you can read your recipient and adapt your form so that what you want to say is also perceived as you meant it – and that’s something of an art.
We are constantly reading our surroundings, and most of it is completely unconscious. Through the latest brain research, we now know much more about what happens when we receive information – and why it is sometimes perceived completely differently than intended.
Take home value:
It is this new knowledge that you as a participant will gain insight into. Combined with practical exercises, you as a leader will be able to translate new insights into concrete communication tools.
The purpose of the course in communication is to provide you with a range of tools that optimize your communication skills.
- A nuanced understanding of the manager’s special communication toolbox
- Understanding of the connection between body language, tone of voice and content
- A deeper understanding of segmentation of the recipient’s perception
The course is for leaders who want to become even better at communicating and building a communication culture where openness and straightforwardness are at the center.
We work to build and support an open and straightforward culture of communication, where dignity and respect are naturally integrated. It is especially the everyday situation, rather than presentation technique, that we focus on – this is where the vast majority of our communication takes place.
The course in communication is structured in three phases, which together constitute a communication strategy:
Phase 1: Read the receiver
Phase 2: Choose the optimal behavior
Phase 3: Perform your communication
In the communication course, we focus on:
- Insight into what happens in the brain when we receive information
- The three main elements of communication: body, voice and content
- Reading your surroundings
- Communication strategy – from a to z
- Methods for developing an open and direct communication culture
- One-on-one communication – the close conversation
- The leader to the team – department meetings and joint information
- AI: Appreciative Inquiry – unleash the recognition!
- How to avoid misunderstanding in your communication
- Increase your emotional intelligence and hit the spot with the message
The course alternates between exercises, presentations and reflections on own practice. And you will leave the course with a number of tools and knowledge that are directly applicable in your everyday life as a leader.
