What does communication mean to you? We each communicate and interpret messages in various ways and something simple, like crossing your arms at the wrong time, could make or break a meeting. Understanding the different types of communication styles and identifying which you are best at will determine how well you achieve your outcomes. Once you are aware of your strong and not so strong points you can begin to understand how others perceive you and adjust your communication styles effectively across a diverse range of audiences, one on one or in a group. This workshop will cover different learning styles: Slides based, 1 short video, learner discussions and at the end of the session a questionnaire will be given as a resource By the end of this course your knowledge of the different ways to communicate and different communication styles, coupled together, can be used in a subtle manner to gain a positive outcome in most interactions Human beings are complex creatures and understanding how to communicate effectively and with intent, will provide a confidence boost to professionals in the workplace. They will have a better understanding of why people communicate in a certain way and that understanding will provide them with the ability to adjust their communication strategy to achieve the best possible outcome This course is best suited to working professionals with a foundational knowledge of communication in a work place (junior - mid level)
There is no formal assessment for this course however a short self-assessment will be handed out to each learner at the end of the course. As the facilitator I will be using various informal assessment methods during the courses to understand if the concepts are being understand and can be applied. If learners have any questions, they may note it down and discuss it with me during a scheduled 10 minute session at no extra cost.
In the many years during my career of working with people, training and coaching, the single most common reason for conflict has been 'A Miscommunication'. Many serious conflicts can be avoided if we increase our self-awareness and our awareness of those around us. I've spent years training, researching, writing and experimenting with various forms and communications styles which I've compiled into an easy to understand and even easier to apply methodology. My articles and videos on this topic have been published on various platforms over the years and I continue to strive for current, trending and most importantly, useful information to develop and grow my audience.

About Me

I want to be paid to read, write and talk but since that's not possible (Yet), I've settled for something in the middle- life skills training and facilitation. In the classroom I get to interact with people from all walks of life, sharing what I've learnt, and helping people move forward in their lives, all while learning and developing constantly myself. I use my quirky sense of humor, story telling abilities and my ability to connect with people, to create an engaging learning space where any learner can thrive.

Life skills can range from anything to almost everything! What differentiates a manager from a leader? Or an effective performer from a Highly Effective performer? What makes it so easy to talk to and take advice from one person but not someone else? That's where learning the art of Life skills makes a difference. Knowing how to communicate well; be an active participant in all your engagements or just being present and listening to the conversations around you, can be the difference between a having a job or launching a career.

Here's where I come in: I can help you navigate and apply all these concepts, not just in your professional life, but in your personal life as well.
Outside of the formal learner and development space I am a Life Coach, writer and speaker.
I create training videos on various African, UK and American platforms and try my hardest to continue growing.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
