Talent Development Workshop

A Pathway to Promotion: How to use communication skills to position yourself for promotion

Building a successful career in a global organization depends on a number of factors, but one of the key factors is the ability to communicate effectively. The ability to communicate clearly and concisely and the ability to communicate strategically by providing insights and adding value differentiates managers and leaders from employees.


What will you learn?

In this event, I'll highlight the difference between communicating like an employee and communicating like a leader, so that you can use communication skills to position yourself as a leader.

More specifically, in this event you'll learn:

  • how to avoid using a communication style that positions you as an employee or assistant
  • about best practice global communication and the difference between English ability and communication skills
  • how to use a communication style focused on adding value and providing insights rather than reporting facts
  • how to use a proactive communication style focused on delivering results
  • how to increase your productivity by using a clear structure and concise language to communicate a lot of information in a short-period of time


Who is the event for?

This event is targeted at Taiwanese professionals, who work in an international environment and understand that improving their communication skills will make them more effective and help their career development.



If you'd like to be more effective communicating with international colleagues or customers, this event will provide you with valuable insights and practical examples of how to communicate more like a leader.

*Note: Due to COVID 19, we will need all guests to fill in the Travel and Health Declaration online during registration. This is for all the participant's health safety and follows the Local Taiwan regulations. Thank you for your understanding in advance.
