Communication Skills for Women Training

Communication skills are essential for success in any workplace. Research shows that women often have different skills and communication styles than their male colleagues.

Often times in the workplace women are not heard, are more likely to be interrupted, and if they do speak up they are often disliked for their assertiveness. This program focuses on building communication skills and competences that allow women to achieve in the workplace.

The session begins with an overview of the research that describes difference in communications styles and how gender impacts communication. An assessment of each participant’s communication skills will be completed. A discussion of the strengths and opportunities revealed by the assessment will be included. The program will end with exercises designed to increase awareness and optimize communication skills to increase participants’ success in the workplace.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how communication is impacted by gender
