Business Communication and Negotiation Skills
About the program:
The ‘Business Communication and Negotiation Skills’ program taught at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte is essential for anyone who wishes to expand their leadership and business communication skills.
Leaders often set the stage for how well a team develops and works together and great communication skills can go a long way towards achieving this. As part of the program you will undertake interactive workshops and team building activities that will give you a chance to develop your negotiations skills and provide with you great insights on how to deal with conflicts in the workplace. Over the course of 3 weeks, you will learn about leadership styles and have the opportunity to work on your presentation skills to become adept at producing informative and persuasive presentations.
Another exciting aspect of the program is the section on business communication for meetings and negotiations. In this part of the course, not only will you learn the theory about how to conduct meetings, interviews and negotiations in a US context, but you’ll learn and practice real-world skills. You will also study how to enhance creativity and brainstorm effectively. To top it all off, you’ll be visiting a range of businesses to put your new skills to the test. This is genuinely stepping out of the classroom and into the ‘Real World’.
