Description

YMCA Newcomer Information Centre invites you to a series of workshops: Connecting Dots to Employment - Appreciation for Communication Workshop IV.

The workshop can be a highly stressful environment. Good communication skills are vital in helping you to work effectively, building solid relationships, prevent unnecessary misunderstandings, and navigate day-to-day deadlines.

Appreciation for Communication is the fourth workshop in Connecting the Dots to Employment, a pre-employment workshop series that exposes you to different considerations during your job hunt, other than your resume and cover letter. The series will help you explore your own assets while understanding your tolerance for change; you will learn about the inner workings of the workplace while acquiring new tools for communicating with others. You will recognize your uniqueness and learn how to make online platforms work for you.

Topics include:

  • Effective communication and active listening skills
  • Body language - what are you saying without speaking from your mouth?
  • Learning to be assertive (direct)
  • Giving positive and constructive feedback
