Communication Skills

This course will teach you all the hidden secrets around communication. Communicating your message is not just something that happens by its self, it takes awareness and skills.

Effective Communication can build trust, make people understand you, get respected and develop relationships. Effective communication is needed to build rapport as well as deepen relationships as required. Relationship problems can be avoided with it. It can be used for decision making, reaching to conclusions and solve problems through interaction in conflicts. It can also be helpful if you have to convey negative messages. Having good relationship with people reduces stress and anxiety. You will also have social support and backup.

SMME’s

Some of the things which SMME’s battle with is having the wrong driver to start a business and those that have left corporates are used to dealing with “professionals” in a specific field which may not necessarily be the case when you own your own business. You are not guaranteed that you will be dealing with people who are most like you all the time. As cliché as this sounds, entrepreneurship can be a lonely road and often a high level of resilience is required. In addition to the core business competencies and skills SMME’s require support for their thinking to assist them to reach their full potential.
