Communication Skills for Non-Communication Managers

Managers in organizations have a responsibility to communicate decisions and goals to their work teams in an accurate and effective manner. 

Communication that is full of jargon and errors will impede understanding and decision making. This is why even managers in non-communication departments need to regularly learn to communicate clearly and meaningfully with others in the work place.

The goal of this intensive course is to train managers in non-communication roles on how to communicate in a clear and effective way in the organization.
