Communication Skills for High Pressure Teams

Courses never cancelled. Last minute rescheduling. 24 month delegate support forum. And more... This workshop combines fundamentals of emotional intelligence and behavioural styles analysis with practical communication strategies to equip teams with the tools and techniques needed to deal with difficult stakeholders, unrealistic expectations and conflict. Although the focus is on managing external relationships, the workshop also facilitates communication within the team to encourage support and shared values, and to enable the team to deal with communication issues together.

STL virtual classroom training

We all have to accept our preferred face-to-face method just isn't an option right now. However, virtual classroom training that we have developed offers some benefits which can make it seem less of a compromise and more of a viable interim training solution. 

Our virtual classroom training is delivered by the same team responsible for achieving industry leading customer satisfaction ratings with face-to-face training, so rest assured you are in safe hands.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This two-day communications workshop is suitable for front-line teams dealing regularly with difficult groups of stakeholders. This course would benefit HR, customer service or sales departments and any group of people who deal with customer issues daily.
