Communication Skills for Technical Professionals
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
For years, strong technical skills were all that you needed to be successful, but today, being technically competent is not enough. Successful systems people must communicate their ideas, wants and needs, and listen carefully to those of others. Systems professionals need to communicate because the volume of information continues to grow. You need to understand more. You need to explain more.
Whether you usually communicate orally or in writing, this workshop will help you improve your skills. Speak clearly in one-on-one, small group and presentation situations. Listen more attentively to your co-workers. Put power into your written communications. Attending this 3-day workshop will improve your communication skills, making you more valuable and promotable.
