Hi, I’m Cheryl Martin.
Why do we need to learn how to communicate?
Just like being a tradesperson, a doctor, a hairdresser or some other workplace role requiring training, being an effective communicator also requires training. To excel in a particular area of work and develop essential and specialist skills we must undertake training, study and practice our skill set. Likewise, communication is a skill to be learnt and practiced. Unlike many essential functions required for being an effective human being, we are not born with guaranteed effective communications skills. For most people these skills are learnt through effective role models, learning from our mistakes, trying out different ways of communicating and sometimes through formal training. Unfortunately many people go through their schooling without receiving any communication education and many people reach adulthood and still do not understand the basic recipe and essential tools for effective communication.
How do we develop these skills?
With some simple and effective techniques and practice, everyone can improve their communication skills. These skills will help you to be the best worker you can be. At Communicate Well Work Well you will be equipped with a clear recipe for effective communication, familiarise yourself with an essential ‘toolkit’ to use in improving your communication and set yourself goals to practice this in your workplace! With practice these skills will improve your working (and often personal!) relationships, allow you to deliver important information more accurately and positively empower you as a more effective communicator.
Where, and how long are the sessions?
Communicate Well Work Well sessions are held in Bendigo, Australia, and run 2.5 hours. Participants will leave with reading materials and tasks to practice.
Who should attend?
Everyone! From the most senior director, to trades people, small-business employees, professional staff, office teams, individuals and apprentices. Improved communication leads to profitable improvement and satisfaction on every level. Members of the general public are also welcome and encouraged to participate.

So how can your business use CWWW?
Imagine if your staff could just get on and do what they were employed to do?! To make this a reality consider using CWWW as an essential part of your staff Orientation Program. A two hour CWWW investment with new staff will set them up to succeed and be the best they can be in your business. Courses run every week in Bendigo to allow businesses to send new employees on a regular basis. And don’t forget about those existing staff you think could benefit from improved communication skills. Many employees, regardless of their vocational training, do not have the basic yet essential foundation skills in Effective Communication and could contribute so much more to your business once they add these skills to their toolkit!
