Training

When you engage Communications Partners to train your staff, you don't get cookie-cutter classroom sessions and off-the-shelf materials that may have no relevance to your business.   Instead, we work with you to develop customized training sessions tailored to your needs.   Your documents, business content, and communication challenges are where we begin.  

Then, based on our years of experience, we can build a single course or an extensive training program targeted at improving the communication performance of your people in their day-to-day work environment.

Every training session Communication Partners offers is:

  • Business-specific-tailored to the unique requirements of your business goals and processes
  • Customized-using your documents, presentation materials, and business approaches as the foundation of every training session, thus making every session immediately relevant
  • Practical-providing concrete methods that can be implemented quickly on the job
  • Up-to-date-employing current ideas from business, education, and communication research
  • Memorable and dynamic-offering a combination of lecture, group exercises, and individualized instruction to ensure an outstanding training experience
  • Flexible-with sessions as short or as long as schedules, demands, and learning goals permit
  • Individualized-addressing individual needs through follow-up coaching. We can use both small group and 1-on-1 coaching, as well as both in-person interaction and distance learning technologies. Such individualized attention helps ensure that every participant will understand key principles and can apply them
  • Measurable-employing methodologies for assessing improvement and change
  • Replicable and adaptable-so you can repeat a course firm-wide, allowing you to benefit from scale economies, and/or to adapt a course for different contexts or groups of employees.
