As L&D leaders, the ability to communicate with diplomacy and tact improves our leadership skills by helping us manage change, negotiate and compromise, resolve conflicts, gain consensus and collaboration.

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Increase trust, credibility, and respect through words and actions
  • Speak confidently, diplomatically, and tactfully in difficult situations
  • Apply a formula for contributing ideas and disagreeing in an agreeable way
