PD Training

The Communication Skills training course from PD Training is one of our most popular courses and teaches you powerful concepts like how different personality types can influence communication, what your personal communication preferences are, and most importantly how to implement and use these skills immediately.

You’ll learn strategies for overcoming common communication barriers as well as essential skills like active listening, effective use of voice and tone, investigative questioning skills and exploring the importance of body language and the non-verbal communications coming from others.

If you have ever wanted to communicate with more clarity and impact, in any of your relationships, then this course was designed for you!

You will learn about your own personality type as well as other personality types and how to engage others in an entirely new way that provides a path to better communication and improved self-confidence.

PD Training can provide a complete professional development program for your organisation which includes personality profiling and automated training needs analysis, so contact us today to learn more!

This PD Training professional development course is available throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
