Logical & Effective Communication: Cogent Communication Techniques

Course Summary

Skills that enable people to think and speak logically and clearly are increasingly important for business people in today’s fast-changing, ethnically-diverse marketplace.

In the past, when we spoke about ”logical skills”, we were referring to skills crucial for creating business and marketing strategies – necessary primarily for members of senior management. However, with the rapid pace of change and globalization, and even more rapid market developments, it’s clear that to conduct business successfully, we must deal effectively with people of different cultures. Also, as new generations take their place in business and society, it’s essential that everyone’s way of thinking becomes more diverse and adaptable than in the past. This is why logical skills are now indispensable, not only for the top echelons of management ーbut for all of us.
In this course, no matter who you are or what your situation, you will learn how to organize your thoughts logically, communicate your ideas appropriately, and discover the best way to convince others of your viewpoint. Gain the critical thinking skills that will completely and permanently change the way you do business.
