Target Audience: Research, KE, Teaching and Academic Staff
Communication is a fundamental aspect of a researcher’s job and the skills involved are among the most important you have. Research projects, universities, major companies and other organisations all progress through national and international collaboration. Career success often depends on the ability to work effectively with people from different subjects, cultures and backgrounds.
This lively and enlightening course, run by VOX Coaching, will explore practical communication skills to help you strengthen your confidence, become someone to whom others want to listen and achieve greater impact. The focus will not be on what you say so much as how you say it.
Course Outcomes/ Objectives;
The session will help you find a communication style that is authentic, engaging and persuasive. It will enable you to develop greater ‘presence’ and personal authority, to assert yourself constructively and to do yourself justice in a range of professional contexts.
