The Communication Skills Series includes three one-hour webinars geared toward library support staff or any staff interested in professional development. This 60-minute webinar was recorded on February 7, 2013.
Pt. 1: How to Get Others to Listen to You
There are those who command attention when speaking and others who barely get noticed. If you feel you're one of the “barely noticed,” remember that communication skills are just that – skills to be learned.
With a little practice and a lot of determination you can use a few of the tested and tried ways to make others give you their undivided attention, and become keen listeners to you.
This webinar will help you to develop effective communication skills so your words get heard.
In this one-hour program we’ll examine:
- 5 Key Areas to Focus on When Delivering Your Message
- Multiple Tried and True Techniques to Keep People’s Attention and Desire to Listen to You
- 6 Steps to Practice Before You’re Speaking to Others
