Too many people in too many organizations have trouble making themselves understood. It’s not because they – or their colleagues — aren’t bright. Most often, it is because they never learned the techniques needed for effective communications
Kathryn Kiefer has delivered hundreds of speeches, seminars and workshops on how to be a more effective communicator. She focuses on helping people understand that people don’t hear and absorb information in the way that school taught us to write. Then, she explains simple techniques that make people more effective:
- Structuring a presentation or memo to make it easier for people to “get” your key points.
- Distilling the information to ensure the key points don’t get lost in the minutiae.
- Creating visual interest to keep the audience engaged.
- Speaking with the audience rather than at them.
Being a more effective communicator does more than make it easier for people to understand and accept what you are saying. It helps you become a more effective leader in your organization.
Our Communications Techniques program can be tailored as a noon hour Lunch ‘N Learn, a half day workshop or an all day seminar. To learn more about our Communications Techniques program, please contact us.
