Skillshare Breakfast: Effective Online and Offline Communication

In times of unexpected disruptions and rising complexity, the importance of effective collaboration and therefore also effective communication has never been as crucial as it is today. Now, more than ever we find ourselves in situations of being uncertain and adopting to new ways of work.

Effective communication is the glue that helps groups navigate together in a supportive and collaborative way. The quality of our ability to receive information and share ideas empathically – or in other words, the quality of our conversations – directly translates into the impact we will have as individuals as well as groups every single day.

As part of our #10SkillsFor2030 concept, celebrating the 10th birthday of Impact Hub Vienna and looking to continue with the same energy for the next 10 years, this Skillshare Breakfast offers you knowledge to transform your communication skills into a powerful tool that supports your everyday impact.

🔸What will you learn about at this Skillshare Breakfast?🔸

In this workshop we will approach this highly powerful skill set from a facilitator’s point of view, which characterized by a highly empowering and solution-oriented mindset which can be adopted by entrepreneurs and other impact makers who are dealing with very diverse (and often challenging) groups of people on a daily basis.

In facilitation – which can be described as the art of guiding groups through dynamic processes – Effective Communication (verbal & non-verbal) represents a core toolkit for navigating people through challenging situations. It can be the make-or-break factor which can lead to de-motivating as well as uplifting dynamics within groups. And it goes fast – one word, one sentence, one question, one pause can make all the difference in how a group thinks, feels and acts.

Drawing from years of extensive facilitation experience and by looking at real-life examples we will dissect the micro-elements of our every-day communication and understand how we can use these in a more conscious ways to support our intentions. These insights will help you to empower others, create more ownership, share powerful perspectives, address sensitive topics empathically, and much more…
