Good communication is as much about understanding what you’re saying, as it is about understanding how your message is being received. And this unit will give you the insight you need to make your messages stick in a professional setting.
Delivered online by Open Universities Australia, in partnership with Griffith University, this unit starts out with an exploration of the theories of contemporary communication and how factors such as our emotional intelligence, diversity and team dynamics influence communication.
In a business scenario, there are accepted structures and styles for formal and informal communication, and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each one will give you greater awareness of how to structure your messages. For example, how long should you speak for in meetings? When is a phone call required or an email sufficient?
You will get the answers you need through practical exercises and be able to apply your knowledge to the task of report writing and mapping your organisation’s communication structure.
