Effective work place communication can go awry especially in the day of emails and text speak; lack of punctuation and spelling. This training will show you ways to ensure your communication is effective and positive.

What does tone have to do with it? We carry our message with the tone of voice we use. Change in the tone of your voice can completely change the meaning of a sentence.

People who speak English as another language especially find it difficult to hear sarcasm in our tone and this can be detrimental for them understanding when we use it for humour or otherwise.

  • Understanding different styles of communication and ensuring these differences can be used in a positive way to ensure all communication is effective, including text and email
