Principles of Effective Communication


The communication process involves a sender, receiver, message, and channel. However, this simplistic description significantly under-represents what is actually a very complex process. This workshop is designed to build competence in foundational communication skills through practice and reflection on practice.

Topics Covered:

  • Understand the key elements of any communication
  • Discover the importance of body language, word choice and tone of voice in any communication
  • Learn and practice a model for making a request
  • Learn and practice a model for providing constructive feedback
  • Learn and practice a model for providing positive reinforcement
  • Learn and practice a model for “high stakes” communications
  • Learn and practice a model for communication during conflict
