Having Difficult Conversations

In our working lives, we will all need to have difficult conversations sometimes. These require a range of communication skills: verbal (e.g. using different types of questions), non-verbal (e.g. body language) and conversation management (e.g. preparing for the conversation and remaining objective).

This course focuses on verbal and non-verbal communication skills, the associated planning, and the preparation a manager should do before a challenging conversation with an employee. It follows the scenario of a manager meeting with an employee to discuss a performance issue. Learners must choose the best responses to the employee to progress.

Microlearning Courses

  • Short 5-10 minute learning vignettes

  • Focussed on key topics

  • Can be rolled out in response to emerging training needs.

Effective Questioning

Effective questioning skills are an essential part of communication. Being able to ask questions effectively is particularly relevant for customer service personnel, other front-line workers, managers, and team leaders. In this course, you will learn more about question types and when to use them. You will answer questions to see how your current knowledge compares with best practice as you work through the course.

Return to Work

Kim is unable to work and her manager, Randall, must manage her sickness absence with the support of Hannah in HR. Your challenge is to make decisions at key stages in this scenario to achieve a positive outcome. Your progress will be monitored and reported by a performance gauge. Can you stay in the green and keep out of the red? Good luck.

Whether you’re sending an email, writing a report or responding to a customer, good written communication is vital. Our Tips for Writing Effectively Take 5 course empowers employees to excel in this important workplace skill.

Communicating With Care

Good communication is at the heart of all successful organisations and teams. In an increasingly diverse environment, communicating in a way that acknowledges and respects the diversity of the people around us is fast becoming an essential skill.

This is where our Communicating with Care online training course can help. It provides your staff with an understanding of the key things to consider when communicating in a diverse environment. More importantly, though, it gives them a range of practical tips for improving their communications skills, so that they can interact confidently and effectively with a diverse range of people.

Understanding Communication Styles

Everyone has different personality types and communication styles. When working in a team, it can be helpful to understand our own and others’ styles so we can relate to each other better and communicate effectively. In some cases, adapting your communication style to the preferred style of individual team members can improve performance and productivity.

In our Understanding Communication Styles eLearning short course, learners explore the different types of communication styles and how to recognise who has which style. The course looks at the core behaviours that link to each style and how these behaviours can affect the success and productivity of teams.
