The key to gaining influence lies in our COMMUNICATION SKILLS – how you get the message across, how people perceive you, and how you carry yourself. The ability to speak clearly and objectively is even more crucial for those who are separated by distance and differentiated by working environments. Miscommunications cause lost of productivity, resources and time, leading to unnecessary tension and stress at the workplace.
In POWER COMMUNICATIONS, communication specialist Richard La Faber will be empowering participants with his decades of real world experience working with people on a local and international arena. From overcoming nervousness to enhancing charisma, from networking methods to questioning skills, Richard adds the psychological edge to practical techniques of high-impact workplace communication. Richard will also share the strategies to fortify the mindset, especially when dealing with tough people, and his signature module on developing the Power Voice will equip participants with knowledge on how to properly use their voice for better verbal influence.
