This class will help you sharpen your management communication skills through class activities and presentations. You’ll learn what is key to upward and downward communication and therefore be able to create new opportunities for your employees and yourself within your organization.
Communication is not a simple process, and many people do not have the required understanding of communication issues.This class will provide you with the tools to strengthen your verbal, nonverbal and written communications, equipping you for success in your management position.
