Developing your own communication plan

There are exercises to complete as you go through the course to develop your own personalised communication action plan. These include understanding your own communication and relationship challenges and what actions you are going to take and what strategies you will follow to improve your communication and relationships in your life. You will need to allow additional time in addition to the duration of the videos to complete the exercises.


What will you cover on the course and what will you learn?

As you go through the course you will be looking at your own communication and relationship challenges, the impact on you and your life, how to improve your own communication skills and how to apply these communication skills in your life.

By the end of the course you will have a better understanding of your own communication, know what your communication and relationship challenges are, have an action plan for improving your communication skills and an action plan as to how you will apply these communication skills in your life.

Even if you are not finding communication difficult at the moment, you will have the opportunity to review you and your work and to decide on actions to enhance your communication and relationship skills and their application.
