This 1 -Day workshop helps participants identify their communication skills roadblocks and implement strategies to move past them.
In Part 1 of the day, participants focus on speaking clearly. Topics include:
- Pronunciation/accent reduction
- Syllable and word stress
- The rhythm of American English.
In Part 2 participants focus on daily workplace communication. Topics include:
- Active listening
- Small talk
- Strategies for contributing at meetings and on conference calls
- How to make a clear and concise point
In Part 3, participants prepare, rehearse, and present a short presentation on a topic of their choice. They exchange feedback with other participants and the instructor. Their presentations are video-taped and used to help clients create a long range goal plan.
Methods include structured speaking exercises, role playing, free responses, mock meetings, confidence-building activities, and short presentations, and intensive practice exercises for students to complete outside of class. Because all activities are work-related, participants will be able to immediately apply what they have learned in the workplace.
