A phone call is often the introduction to our organisation so it needs to reflect our best. Our tone of voice and clarity determines the overall success of a call and yet remains an under valued and often untrained skill. This one day course looks at a range of calls and explores how we can make them more effective. From the art of listening and understanding to recording and even empathy, this course will look at all dimensions including those often not considered. The day will also explore the art of making successful calls.
Whilst the day focuses on phone calls, a lot of the skills can be used to generally improve our overall verbal communication skills, whether they are used in a meeting, presentation or just conversational.
Attendees will discover that there is more to the humble phone call and, when done effectively, it remains the most powerful of all business communications.
