In today's business environment, in which direct, vertical chains of command have been replaced by team-based management and organizational hierarchies have been streamlined and flattened, more and more work is done collaboratively rather than individually. Thus, the ability of business professionals to work and communicate well with others is vital to both individual and organizational success.
This course teaches professionals at all levels in the workplace how to improve listening skills, communicate and collaborate with colleagues, correctly interpret nonverbal communication from others, and communicate effectively at meetings. The process of effective communication among work teams is explained clearly, and strategies for strengthening communication throughout organizations are taught.
