About Corporate Communication Skills Training Sessions
The workplace is a social environment. Much like any other social environment a lot of things are demanded of it such as encouraging certain mannerisms while discouraging others, communication between peers being of paramount importance, and providing and rendering the right kind of services to the right kind of people. It’s a complicated mix; it involves etiquette, which is to say, how one carries themselves in the workplace environment, and how one can communicate most effectively with one another in said environment. Both need to be performed with a degree of proficiency, and if mastered, can allow a person a surprising degree of movement within the office.
It’s not easy to do however as communication and etiquette, while similar and do often enough intersect, are worlds apart from one another. Etiquette follows rigid structures that most people spend their entire lifetimes mastering; and this is only for general etiquette and not work-related office etiquette, which in itself takes a fair bit of learning to even practice. Communication meanwhile is well within the wheelhouse of linguistics; which means it has many factors to consider to be even remotely effective, these can range from the obvious, to the complex and often obscured.
As was stated before, workplace communication is a careful but volatile mix of etiquette and language use, as such lessons learned from it and proper application can take years, even decades to master. Thankfully however any lesson that can be learned can also be taught, and there are ways to teach the core fundamentals of these lessons for one to effectively and organically construct a framework of their own to operate under. Paramount Training and Development sees the potential need for people proficient with both attributes and how with the rise of modern technology and distancing of social interaction, these lessons will become more and more necessary in future. This was the impetus behind the creation of our Corporate Communication Skills Training Course and why it was made available to the public.
The demands of the workplace are great and many; from desirable attitudes, work-ethics, and language, to the effectiveness of language and language use in its environment. It’s a careful balance of many elements that is quickly becoming a lost art as social interaction in the constantly shrinking modern world demands less and less of it. Paramount Training and Development has developed this Corporate Communication Skills Training course to meet the demands of organisations in need of better workers and workers that desire to better integrate themselves into the workplace environment.
Identify and differentiate office behaviors
The first step in Corporate Communication Skills training is a deceptively simple one; to identify acceptable and unacceptable behaviors within the social context of the workplace; deceptive, as some learners will be unaware that one or the other is good or bad within the context of the workplace until it is handily pointed out by our highly professional proctors and experts. Once this is done, participants will be shown the hows and whys of these behaviors using a mix of simple discussions and demonstrations to help illustrate the benefits or potential for disruption these behaviors present.
Develop methods to improve Professionalism in the workplace
Professionalism isn’t just carefully studied behaviors and attitudes that one has toward the workplace at large – though admittedly that plays a critical role in the proceedings as well – but is also a philosophy, an attitude, a frame of mind where the individual knows of and is aware of how they are part of a company, machine, or organisation much larger than themselves and thus are behooved to operate within the bounds of that organisation to the best of their ability as in doing so would only further themselves as indispensable assets within the workplace and improve the workplace around them with their mere presence. Learners undertaking Corporate Communication Skills training will be taught this ‘part of something great’ way of looking at their employment and is hoped will foster a positive and professional attitude with them that they can take back to their workplace and improve upon once their training is complete.
Re-examine the fundamentals of communication
What is communication? Why is it frequently used? What needs to be present within an utter to make it a form of communication? Why is context important? Along with these questions comes the demand for a short review of linguistics; the hows and whys of the language and all the other minute details that most people utilize everyday but rarely stop to think about. In Corporate Communication Skills Training we feel that it is vital that our learners rediscover their roots by examining the fundamentals of language and communication as this will serve as their backbone and framework for all their future endevours in this course going forward.
Identify and overcome different barriers of social interaction
Many barriers exist that can impede and halt any attempts to interact with others. They vary wildly and greatly in scope, severity, and even what these barriers are. They could be physical such as the medium used to interact with one another such as faulty internet connections, socio-cultural differences such as being from different countries thus having different customs, traditions, and varying forms of etiquette, to more conceptual differences such as conflicting philosophies and biases. Learners taking up the Corporate Communication Skills Training course are taught how to recognise these differences in communication and are shown how to develop strategies and workarounds to these potential barriers by deriving from sturdy and reliable research materials from relevant fields.
Become sensitive to the demands of context
As with language as a whole, statements, utterances, and the like are all subjected to the rigors of context. Part of the environment, the person you’re speaking to, and the task at hand can all change the intended meaning. This adds an extra layer of tenuousness, as it ends up adding an additional later of material that one needs to process. A more concrete example would be how one communicates between a coworker and a superior, where one form of language is acceptable to one, and can lead to an employee’s immediate expulsion for the other.
This is vital, especially in the workplace, where context can completely change the meaning of a statement. Learners of Corporate Communication Skills will be well-informed and equipped to properly interpret statements with context in mind.
