With the speed at which we move, we are used to sending a brief text, or responding with a quick email, often communicating in shorthand. While this works in social situations, it leaves us open to misunderstandings when working on a school assignment, a work project, or a research study. In these situations, misunderstandings can have disastrous results, leading to projects getting derailed, inefficiencies, misinformation being sent out, and missed deadlines.
Communication underlies everything we do and has a direct correlation to the success of a project. It is one of the most basic and important skills we need to be successful in school, on the job, and in volunteer situations.
Engaging Colleagues in Dialogue is a four-hour, hands-on interactive course that helps you develop your one-to-one communication skills. You will learn how to improve both sides of the communication exchange: first working to understand how to better communicate your messages and second, working on listening and acknowledging others messages. You will even have an opportunity to assess your own communications skills through conversations with colleagues.
Whether you are a student, work in a research lab, manage a team of chemists, or teach groups of students, you can see how effective communication skills are central to your ability to complete key tasks, manage projects, and lead teams. Don’t underestimate the value of strong two-way communications and fall into the trap of neglecting your communication skills in a way that hinders your ability to understand and be understood.
