Build the Skill: Professional Communication
Raise your hand if you think networking in super awkward? We get it. That’s why we developed Build the Skill: Professional Communication. This program gives you an opportunity to practice your skills through a valuable professional communication scenario: requesting, conducting and documenting informational interviews with people whose careers you would like to know more about. Throughout the process, you will develop and apply knowledge of professional communication norms and strategies for successful communication in organizational settings. We even provide templates for emails, phone scripts and how to leave a voicemail!
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Identify and articulate your personal communication styles in professional settings
- Implement strategies for professional email and telephone communication
- Practice active listening and professional inquiry by conducting an informational interview
- Practice giving and receiving feedback with a peer
- Document your insights and lessons learned professionally in written and presentation formats
