The Seven Secrets of Communicating with Confidence, Clarity & Credibility in Every Situation

Communication happens in many ways. At this seminar you will learn to recognise  Secret Gems of Communicating that will ensure you get your message across effectively. There are so many ways that we communicate with others that we need to decide which combination of methods to use - whether it be the spoken or written word, body language or visual images, and as we enter the 21st Century, multimedia methods like television, video, cd and dvd and of course the internet.

Secret One - The Spoken Word
We take speaking to others for granted because we do it every day. However, far too many people fail to realise just how easy it is for others to misunderstand us (and then we blame them for getting it wrong!)! This seminar will show you how to improve your communications with others - whether it's face to face or over the telephone - so that your message is understood and acted upon!

Secret Two - The Written Word

Being the basis of business communication, it is essential that you master the skills of using words effectively. You will learn how to communicate better using letters, memos, reports, proposals, notes, summaries, agendas, minutes, discussions and email.

Secret Three - Body Language
Even when you are sitting still your body language is communication with all those in your presence. Unknowingly you are giving off powerful messages of your feelings and attitudes. Learn the secrets of body language and you will be able to influence the outcome of important events in your life. In our ever more diverse cultural community, it is vital you become aware of the different ways many Australians view the invisible signals that we give off. 

Secret Four - Gestures
Gestures and other non-verbal communication such as posture and facial expressions are critical building blocks of communication. You will learn a range of gestures to practice that will have a dramatic positive effect on your ability to communicate with confidence, clarity and credibility.

Secret Five - Listening
The two-way nature of communication is often ignored because both sides have failed the skill of effectively listening to the other party's point of view. Learn to identify and rectify sloppy listening techniques. By knowing how and when to eliminate 'Passive' listening, constant interruptions and prejudice, two way communications will take on a new and powerful part of your life and business.

Secret Six - Questions
The right questions, asked the right way, open the door to knowledge and understanding. The art of questioning lies in knowing what questions to ask and IMPORTANTLY, when to ask them. To communicate with confidence, clarity and credibility you need to learn the skills of choosing the right question, phrased the right way, asked with confidence and authority so that you learn the information you need to be effective in business.

Secret Seven - Taking Notes
Forget relying on your memory when you learn to master efficient methods of recording speech or condensing written communication. In Communicating with Confidence, Clarity & Credibility we share with you the latest techniques of mind mapping, speedwriting, and the use of colour enabling you to make effective notes that dramatically improve your ability to make use of the mountains of information that pass over your desk each day.
