Primary focus is on developing advanced interpersonal communication skills. Topics include: effective listening, conveying ideas concisely and persuasively, and adapting one's communication style to best connect with others. Managerial applications are emphasized; examples include: successfully managing difficult ("crucial") conversations while avoiding destructive conflict, customer-facing interactions (such as complaints), business networking, negotiation tactics, and key employee interactions: performance reviews, setting SMART Goals, and disciplinary conversations. The course requires extensive "field work" to apply the concepts learned in class to the real world.
Note: Fees for fall classes are not displayed at this time because tuition rates are not yet defined by the Wisconsin Technical College System Board. Rather than provide incorrect information, no fees for fall classes will be displayed until tuition rates are received. It is estimated that fall fees will be displayed later in May 2015. Once fees are available, updated costs will appear in your student financial account.
