Communication Skills for Engineers
Fri, 05 February 2016
The Royal Institution of Naval Architects, in conjunction with Emmett and Smith, offers two one-day workshops aimed at developing the communication skills of engineers. The workshops demonstrate how to effectively communicate in business with a specific focus on customer and colleague engagement through enhanced presentation and networking skills. The workshops provide those attending with opportunities to utilise their newly acquired knowledge, practice their new skills and receive constructive feedback. Delegates are encouraged to be proactive and contribute towards the process as they grow in confidence.
This workshop covers the fundamental communications skills required by all engineers. It includes:
· Understanding what effective communication is
· Active listening
o Bad habits
o The listening hierarchy
· Verbal & non-verbal communication
· Laws of Remembering & Forgetting
· The communication pyramid
· Attention Spans
The Effective Communications workshop provides a useful, but not essential, lead-in to the more focussed workshop on Effective Presentation and Networking workshop.
