Some Business Communication Improvement Program Highlights
Interviewing Skills Training
In this competitive world, it is important to make your first impressions count! You want to stand out from the rest of the applicants when you interview for your dream job. Find out how to make not only a positive impression, but also a lasting impression, through appropriate body language, confident speech skills, and appropriate business English.
Professional Written Language Training
Our course is designed to help you focus attention on improving your written language skills. This program is designed for English speaking professionals who struggle with word usage, grammar, word order and fluency.
We’ll also help you develop your written presentation by reviewing its content for American English sounds and sentence structure. You’ll receive vocabulary suggestions and appropriate business expressions to support your topic, enthrall your audience and exceed your desired outcomes.
Reading Fluency And Comprehension Training
Our Program will help you if you struggle with the decoding (breaking down words into sounds and syllables) of reading and the encoding (putting sounds and syllables into words) of spelling. Our primary focus will be on learning letter sounds, sound groupings, bunching of syllables and letter and sound pairings.
If you’d like, we can also spend time helping you understand and apply the information you read for your job. We will use your corporate terminology and manuals to help you grasp the main idea, topic and organization of written materials such as email, business correspondence and special reports.
How’s Our Program Work?
At Speaking Successfully we believe that, regardless of your experience, how well you speak, if English is your second language or which region or country you’re from, you can significantly improve your business communication skills.
No matter your skill level, the program length or class size you select, all our courses include three essential components: a thorough assessment, professional training and lots of practice.
Our programs begin with a thorough assessment of your business communication skills. For example, we’ll determine exactly how your pronunciation varies from standard American English.
We will also discover which specific areas we’ll need to concentrate on the most. For example, do you speak too quickly, too slowly, do you drop the ending sounds on words, do you mumble, or do you ‘um’ and ‘er’ a lot? This assessment also helps us determine the number of sessions required.
Our Business Communication Specialist begins with an evaluation of your particular business English skills, your workplace and personal requirements and your business communication goals. We’ll assess your use of body movements, facial gestures, related body language and cultural knowledge. Then we’ll design a program tailored to your personal and professional needs.
- Greater advancement opportunities mean greater chances for a better career
- Increased professional performance
- Increased customer satisfaction - face-to-face and over the telephone
- Increased confidence: professionally, socially, and personally
- Improved organizational communication and efficiency
Your Training Program
All your Business Communication Improvement is done with a nationally certified speech pathologist. Depending on your specific needs, instruction will specifically address pronunciation, intonation and inflection, pitch, voice projection, speaking rate, grammar and total word production.
When you’ve learned the sounds and principles of Western English, you'll have the tools to master even the most specialized, technical or scientific terminology. You'll gain the confidence in your conversational skills to tackle group discussions and formal presentations.
Our programs also incorporate follow-up coaching. You will see successful results from this unique aspect. This added value may just be the incentive you or your employees need to maintain success!
Our programs are flexible, with training schedules designed to fit the busiest company or executive. Our programs range from 2 to 4 to 7 to 14 hours in length with a variety of manageable schedules. We believe sustained learning occurs over time with consistent input and support.
Lots of Practice
To improve your business communication skills takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It cannot be done in our trainings alone. The professionals at Speaking Successfully will always provide you additional carryover practice work. Typically, there's 30-45 minutes of practice work each day.
You may also work independently recorded personal practice exercises on tape or CD. You’ll also receive tailored assignments using your new business communication skills in real life situations.
