201 Communications Skills for Effective Supervision
Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Would it surprise you to learn that up to 80 percent of a supervisor’s time can be taken up with communication? Because we’ve been communicating all our lives – and probably talking more than listening – we assume we’re good communicators. But effective communication requires much skill and understanding, and is rarely achieved without deliberate effort to learn and practice. This workshop focuses on how a supervisor sends and receives messages so as to sustain productivity and preserve workplace relationships. Learning objectives include: • Expand awareness of your communication style using Myer/Briggs Type Indicator • Learn when, what and how effective supervisors communicate • Acquire practical skills for becoming a better listener • Practice skills in soliciting and giving feedback • Learn communication practices that contribute to positive work relationships This course is taught by Teresa Schwab from KU Public Management Center.
