SCI training: Developing the right skills to communicate

Everyone has to communicate in some way or another.

It could be a speech you are delivering or maybe it’s as simple as talking with a spouse or friend.

Either way, you will have to get your message across using some form of communication.

Developing your communication skills can help all aspects of your life, from your professional life to social gatherings and everything in between.

The ability to communicate information accurately, clearly and as intended, is a critical life skill and something that should not be overlooked.

No matter your age, background or experience, effective communication is a skill you can learn.

It’s never too late to work on your communication skills and by doing so improve your quality of life.

On April 26, some help is on the way.

The Studer Community Institute’s Making Your Next Presentation Bulletproof Workshop with Daniel Pennington offers practical advice to help improve communication as well as public speaking.

With nearly four decades in television, Pennington has coached thousands of people in the art of crafting and delivering a compelling message.

His training and experience in sales, marketing, advertising and public speaking brings together in one session an array of techniques in effective communication.

In today’s informational and technological world, it is essential to have good communication skills.

The inability to communicate effectively can hold you back, not only in your career, but also in social and personal relationships.

In the workshop, you’ll not only learn how to communicate more effectively, but also have a chance to implement these techniques in small group exercises.

Statistics show that nearly 80 percent of success in life is directly attributable to communication skills. That means that no matter how ambitious, how committed or how highly educated someone is, they still have a low probability of success unless they develop the right skills to communicate and speak in pubic.

The good news is that with some tips and some practice, you can leave a lasting impression that you will want people to remember.

As the adage goes, “It’s not what you say, but how you say it.” Communication is what separates a poor leader from an exceptional one. Having effective communication skills is the key to good leadership.

Whether Pennington is working one-on-one with CEOs of large non-profits or providing tips in leadership groups, his training is highly valued for both its simplicity and practicality.
