Professional Communication Series
This series of three communications modules is the core curriculum for
professional development and programs are usually one-month in length with
sessions weekly. Each can be customized to be valuable for people at all
levels of your organization.
Participants learn the eight elements of quality writing and the seven main
purposes for written communication. They work on practice memos, letters and
reports in everyday business applications. Samples from their specific
correspondences are used to customize the practice sessions and participants
are encouraged to bring sample correspondence to the session. For hands-on
applications, participants should bring samples of their written materials
that are representative of what they are currently doing.
Most professionals can double or triple their reading speed with eye-strengthening
and the right techniques. The key is also improving comprehension at the same time.
Participants are taught and then practice the essential skimming and scanning techniques
that will significantly increase their speed and comprehension. This is great for
students and anyone who has to read a lot on the job.
Assess your use of time and your methods of managing time to produce better results
professionally, and as a result, personally. Identify your key time savers and time
wasters. Develop a simple plan to optimize the use of your time on the job and discover
strategies for making each day more productive now and in the future.
