Course Details

Course Summary

In this online Short Course, you will explore the intricate operations of communication in both its successful and unsuccessful annunciations. As a future business leader, it is necessary that you understand the operations of successful communication as well as the sources of communication breakdowns so that you may promote the former and avoid the latter. A thorough understanding of interpersonal communication is an important area for managers as management involves interacting with and communicating to different parties. Improved interpersonal skills will help you understand and communicate better with your team, minimise conflict and foster a more supportive workplace. You will discuss various theories and analyse different communication models with the aim of making you a better communicator, influencer and motivator. You will also examine how to manage different business conversations and issues in an effective way to help you feel more confident when leading and managing teams. In addition, you will look at the various contexts that impact the meaning of language. The context of any given situation can promote different attitudes, approaches and styles of communicating and this will be explored throughout the course using case studies.
