045 Elements of Effective Communication

Audrey Halpern

Speaker: David Rohlander
Duration: 90 Minutes
Level: Intermediate

Overview

There is a huge difference between the talented communicator and the effective communicator. The elements required to be effective are trust, respect, understanding, empathy and resolution. We will explore each of these.

There are many ways to implement these behaviors and this webinar will examine the basis of this concept, how to learn the necessary elements and why each is so important. The most important part is “understanding.” This is absolutely the foundation of effective communication. We will spend the majority of our time on learning the many facets of how to read people, awareness of self and techniques and methods to practice.

When you can master effective communication it allows you to lead, persuade and make people believe in you and your ideas. It is then up to you to practice pure integrity because you will have tremendous power.

Why should you attend

The one thing you can not hide is your ability to communicate. It is much more than having a good vocabulary, being able to speak in public or even being a good listener. The effective communicator understands how to read people, realizes that communication is both receiving and broadcasting and is able to adapt to many unique and stressful situations relating to communicating with others.

Politicians  are held in low regard by the average person because what they say has very little to do with how they behave or what they accomplish. If you can not be taken at your word, people will regard you as very suspect. There is no way you will be able to effectively lead or manage others. If you doubt this, just look at our elected representatives in Washington, DC.

This webinar will address head-on the most fundamental problem most people have: “How to effectively communicate.” We will explore the critical elements of the effective communicator. How do you develop these traits and how do you use communication to accomplish great things through other people.

Areas covered in the session

05Stressed Out: How to Handle Conflict, Difficult People and Challenging Situations

Audrey Halpern

Speaker: Marcia Zidle
Duration: 60 Minutes
Level: Intermediate

Overview

Conflict is an inevitable part of life.  No matter how hard you try, it can seem that there will always be something that causes you or someone around you to be frustrated, angry, and impatient – or a whole host of other not-so-pleasant emotions.

Conflict arises when the people we work with have different ideas, perspectives, backgrounds, values, goals or expectations. Yes, conflict can be destructive! It diverts energy from more important activities and issues; it polarizes people and reduces co¬operation; and it can produce irresponsible behavior. And conflict can be constructive! It opens up and improves communication; it strength¬ens working relationships and team¬work; and it leads to better quality decisions and problem solutions.

The ability to handle conflict and difficult situations is a great leadership skill. When you are confident in your people management skills, you don’t have to be afraid of disagreement. You don’t have to back away from problems. Instead you can confidently face the confrontation and bring the issue out into the open. Well-managed conflict actually stimulates ideas, sparks creativity and encourages personal improvement.  Conflict by itself is neither good nor bad. It’s the way YOU handle conflict that produces constructive or destructive results.

Why should you attend

Time is Money. There are a variety of direct costs to the organization associated with poorly managed conflict, including, in the worst cases, the loss of customers and good employees. One that is visible to everyone is the time taken to successfully resolve issues. Time that would be better spent on accomplishing work and achieving goals is instead used to manage disagreements, smooth ruffled feathers, and deal with difficult people.

When CPP Inc commissioned a study on workplace conflict, they found that that an overwhelming majority (85%) of employees at all levels experience conflict to some degree. Furthermore, they found on average, each employee spends 2.1 hours every week – approximately one day a month – dealing with conflict in some way (being involved in a disagreement, managing a conflict between co-workers, etc.)

It is also a major drain on the resources of HR departments: half of the HR workers questioned (51%) spend between one and five hours a week managing disagreements.

Areas covered in the session
  • Identify the top six causes of conflict and which one produces the most problems
  • Understand the iceberg concept of conflict – what’s above and below the water line
  • Define five conflict management styles and match each style to different conflict situations
  • Decide if you’re a shark or a turtle or a teddy bear or a fox or owl in how you handle conflict.
  • Learn how to keep your cool and react in a professional manner in the heat of the moment.
  • Learn the language of positive communication to reduce negative emotions, especially anger.
  • Recognize the four types of difficult people that drive you crazy and how to deal with them.
Learning objectives

The crucial issue is not whether conflict, disagreement and difficult people can be avoided; the real concern is how they can be dealt with that will lead to positive outcomes. If managed improperly, businesses’ productivity, operational effectiveness, and morale take a major hit. On the other hand, when channeled through the right tools and expertise, conflict can lead to a better understanding of others, improved solutions to problems or challenges, and major innovation.

06Managing Workplace Stress: How to Create a Less Stressful and More Productive Work Environment

Audrey Halpern

Speaker: Bruce Lee
Duration: 90 Minutes
Level: Intermediate

Overview

Stress is a killer— to you and to employee engagement, empowerment, productivity, morale and a sense of accomplishment. When your self-esteem goes down, and your reputation and the work you do is threatened, how you handle it can be a serious blow to your career. If you are constantly overwhelmed, you are not as productive as you should be. Your performance suffers and the ability to lead people and projects takes a hit.

Why should you attend

As demands on you and your time continue to increase, so does the level of stress, unless you have a plan in place to handle it. When you are expected to accomplish more with less, take on increased duties and responsibilities, make tough decisions you need confidence – that you can handle it all. Even worse, when your stress rubs off on your employees, no one is operating at peak performance, and they will generate a toxic environment. 

The sources of stress are endless and it is critical that you learn to recognize, manage and mitigate the negative effects of what stresses you. This is being proactive and taking steps to eliminate the stressors you can—and dealing with the stress you can’t. In this powerful webinar, learn how to de-stress yourself and your environment and grow your career.

Areas covered in the session

During this session, you will learn:

  • Stress: The good, the bad and the downright ugly
  • The issues that are causing you to stress out and stay that way
  • Identifying and managing your biggest stressors at work
  • How to get swagger and grow your reputation
  • Time management tactics to take back control of your day
  • How the right communication at the right time can reduce your stress
  • Creating a stress-less work environment
  • The keys to overcoming stress—and hit your goals
  • And more!

Additional bonuses that you will receive:

  • two special reports:
  • “21 Day De-Stress Prescription Plan” 
  • “33 Ways to Reduce Stress.”
  • PDF Copy of book: 
  • Why Trust Me? Making Trust your Competitive Edge
  • E-book: 
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed: How to Satisfy Every Customer, Every Time
Learning objectives

Stress can affect your career adversely in lot many ways. Learn how to handle stress and keep your organization away from the negative impacts of stress to create a more productive work environment.

07Effective Communication Skills: It’s Not What You Say, But How You Say It!

Audrey Halpern

Speaker: Bruce Lee
Duration: 60 Minutes
Level: Beginner

Overview

Effective communication is about really listening to others without any blinders on, eliminating the gossip and rumor mill, reducing the causes of turnover by providing timely and appropriate recognition, leading employees through changes by transparency, correcting the poor performers by coaching them, and setting the standards in highly adhered to on-boarding and training standards.

Why should you attend

In this presentation you will develop a strategy of communication success that includes identifying someone’s preferred communication style so you can meet them where they are communicating from, see all the tools you have available to communicate more effectively, adapt sound negotiating tactics that generate results, and learn what the signs of your strengths and weakness are.

Areas covered in the session

All we have in common with anyone and everyone else, is this skill called communication. It matters that we say it right and that the listener hears it right. With multi-generational and multi-cultural workforces these days, it is important you get it correct the first time. Communication is not a 50/50 proposition of you asking and accepting any response, it is 100% of you being accountable for getting the information across, having it understood and then getting an agreement back of what is being communicated – verbally, be it face to face, on the phone, electronically or in writing. Effective communication is more than one person talking. Respectful conversation includes how you sound to others, the words you use, the accuracy of what you say, the intent to be positive and the attention you give the other person. We need to say it with persuasion.

Learning objectives

Miscommunication is the #1 cause of workplace conflict, production errors, low morale, customer and employee complaints and poor teamwork. To be effective at work you need to speak up, be heard and have your messages acted upon. When you do, you create that quality called trust, that is the engine of high performance.
