CRANFORD – Distinguish yourself from other, similarly qualified employees in your field by refining your interpersonal and written communication skills. Through an eight-week course at Union County College, you can gain such skills for professional as well as personal development in a highly competitive marketplace. The course, “Effective Communications in Business,” will begin in mid-October and extend through early December.
The course will address verbal, non-verbal, and written communication skills, dealing with such important areas as managing conflict in the workplace, active listening, choosing just the right words that you want to say to convey your message, interpreting body language and other non-verbal communication. It will also cover group problem solving, and writing effective letters, memos, e-mails, and short reports. Grammatical questions will be consistently addressed.
Students will walk away from the course with a more insightful understanding of the inner workings of the communication process and how each aspect plays an integral role in the total communication effort. A textbook and worksheets will be used, along with relevant handouts, exercises, and writing assignments to correspond with each class topic.
The course is highly interactive, focusing heavily on individual student concerns through practical exercises as well as full-class discussions and partnering to emphasize issues that face individuals in their workplace settings.
“Effective Communications in Business” will be presented from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, October 13 through December 1 at the College’s Cranford Campus.
