About the topic: Decode your Communication

Conveying a message to other people clearly might sound simple, but it’s a process that is often fraught with error. Many people struggle to communicate effectively – verbally and in writing. They impart thoughts and ideas that don’t reflect their intended meaning, and that their recipients misinterpret or misunderstand. This can result in confusion, frustration, wasted effort, and missed opportunities. Communication breaks down, causing collaboration and progress to become impossible.
This session does a deep dive into Trust & Credibility in one’s communication and then administers a proven analysis into identifying the style of one’s own communication that they should be aware of.

Audience will understand how trust plays a major role in Communication, they will additionally learn the difference between good and effective communication and finally take a psychometric analysis to identify their communication style. In the end, the session is aimed at improving their confidence while communicating and become more comfortable when they speak.
