Credits: 3Catalog #10102114
Primary focus is on developing advanced interpersonal communication skills. Topics include, but are not limited to: effective listening, conveying ideas concisely and persuasively during conversations, and adapting one's communication style to best connect with others. Business and managerial applications are emphasized; examples include: selling yourself in an interview setting, business networking, negotiation tactics, and successfully managing difficult ("crucial") conversations while avoiding destructive conflict. The course requires extensive "field work" to apply the concepts learned in class to the real world, and development of an individual Communication Improvment Plan that can be utilized after completion of the class. This course complements, but does not require, classes in written communication and public speaking.
