Course Description

INTRODUCTION

Strategic Communications have never been more critical. Organisations must communicate effectively with their stakeholders in a crowded communications world to build trust, manage reputation and inform them of their priorities and objectives. You will develop the skills to scan the horizon for issues which might impact your organisation – including political, economic, social and technological developments.

The art is then understanding the skills it takes to communicate effectively, with presence, at every level in the workplace.  Developing this competency is vital to managerial skills enhancement given that effective communication is essential to the current and future success of any organization. However, because we are now operating in a tech-heavy, time-poor environment, not only do leaders need to understand – they need to be understood – and quickly.  Real communication is about first understanding self and then about knowing, with certainty, how other people differ from you and how your message comes across to them.
