Consider how much time your people spend in meetings and conversations with clients or colleagues. Are you confident each interaction is positive and productive? Are your people building credibility and strengthening relationships every time they interact?

Participants assess their communication skills, practice using new techniques, and encourage each other to improve their meetings and conversations.
Each interpersonal skills course helps participants develop the skills needed to interact in different types of meetings: either 1:1 or formal group meetings. Whether they’re facilitating a formal meeting or conducting an informal face-to-face conversation, participants learn strategies to help them confidently stay on task and be productive.

Getting together to learn something saves everyone from having to read email chains and search for information individually. Meeting as a group also ensures everyone has the same information. This makes discussion and debate more fruitful, and decisions faster and better.
When you put a team together to solve a problem, you get better quality solutions than if you do it on your own. When your team is well briefed, your collective ideas are even better.
When the leader plans a meeting thoughtfully and participants prepare in advance, people come with their best ideas and can make informed decisions.
When you create a culture of accountability, participants know they are responsible for completing assigned tasks. That’s how projects move forward.
With strong facilitation skills, meeting leaders can make sure all ideas are heard and points of view respected. This ensures conflict is resolved with healthy discussion, contributing to a positive culture and the best solutions.
