According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 73% of employers prefer candidates with strong communication skills. Knowing how to communicate with tact and professionalism can mean the difference between getting your view across and being misunderstood; getting the dream job or missing an opportunity; or building strong, positive working relationships rather than facing conflicts and barriers. Think of the “fast-track” professionals you know. It is not their technical expertise, hard knowledge or even superior intelligence that fosters their success. It is their exceptional management of human interactions and business situations — the same skills that you can possess to propel your career, boost productivity and experience job satisfaction. Whether you work with a few people in-person or manage hundreds remotely, our down-to-earth principles and easy-to-implement strategies within this 1-hour webinar promise to equip you to manage interactions and situations with more confidence, dexterity and professional assertiveness.
From the most reserved introvert to the most unfiltered extrovert, everyone can develop and refine their communication and social intelligence. We often think of sociability as an innate human trait, that people are born charismatic and personable. In truth, anyone can learn and master this important skill set and accelerate their career development and growth.
