This practical and interactive webinar will introduce you to some of the skills you need to communicate more effectively at work. The training is hands-on - providing time for reflection, a bit of practice, and some feedback.

Course focus areas:

• Communication Styles – understanding and adapting to communication preferences

• Positive influencing skills


A CEF level of B2(high)/ - C1/C2 is needed to participate, as it will be taught entirely in English.

Participants will be asked to bring a mobile phone with a recording device to the webinar for one of the tasks
