Communication is the transfer of a message from sending to receiver and is impacted by many factors. Whether you talk one-on-one, in small groups or to large audiences, some of the very same factors apply.
This workshop is divided into four primary factors impacting verbal communication: Styles - the different ways we package our overall communication; Vocal power - one's diction and modulation of volume, pace, pitch, tone, etc.; Listening - the ways we receive incoming verbal messages and; Non-verbals - how we transmit and interpret communication signals.
