Due to concerns about COVID-19 pandemic recently, we at the BCCT are concerned for the safety and wellbeing of our members and friends. We have decided to postpone the workshop (original planed on the 13th of May) to the 19th of August as we evaluate the situation. The new date of the workshop is on the 19th of August, the same time from 16:00 to 18:00 at BCCT Office, don't forget to save the date!
Hope everyone stays safe and healthy, we look forward to seeing you all on August 19th!
WORKPLACE COMMUNICATION: INFLUENCE AS A CROSS-CULTURAL THEME
By the end of the session, you will:
- Enhance your communication and influence a range of stakeholders
- Develop influencing techniques within both oral and written communication
- Put techniques into practice through short activities
Influence is often seen as something that only skilled leaders do well, or a technique that takes years of study and practice. In this short interactive workshop, we will debunk these myths, and help you explore and develop your 'influential edge' regardless of your role, position, preferred communication style(s), and medium.
We will look at ways to influence people in everyday workplace situations: when giving short presentations, writing and responding to emails, giving opinions at meetings and in conference calls, and negotiating or in conflict with others.
This mini-workshop will be broken down into four sections, each focusing on a specific workplace situation. Within each section participants will learn/revisit theory, have discussions, and take part in short scenarios to effectively move from awareness, to basic skill building. As part of each section, we will also look at how culture, personality, and identity further influence outcomes.
1. Situation: Presenting Information
Influencing Focus: Using Your Voice
