How soft skills help handle hard tasks
workshop
I believe you will agree with the fact that communication and presentation skills in today’s world determine our professionalism.

Achieving goals in business meetings, negotiations, presentations as well as career growth are to a great extent the outcomes of mastering these skills. It is much easier to build trust, persuade and create an appropriate impression of oneself and one’s company if you are a good communicator and speaker.
I see effective communication as an ability to select and combine content and delivery. It pretty much resembles cooking: so that to have a delicious dish, ingredients and the recipe are equally important. In other words I suggest we care about what we speak as well as how we do that.

There is no doubt that competence, confidence and culture first of all reveal themselves in how a person behaves. They are seen in persuasive gestures, well-handled mimics, clear and emphatic speech. All these things 'enhance the taste' of the content.

Join the session to become a better cook in the kitchen of communication.
