This Communication Development Program focuses on increasing participants' self-awareness to enhance their ability to communicate. Communication, like all complex behaviours, requires understanding, practice and reinforcement. In this program, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own and others' communication styles.  

This Communication Development Program provides a transformational, practice-based, integrated program of communication development. This means that the program produces a sustainable shift in behaviour and actions in the participants' approach to communication - not only in what they know about communication, but how the participants practice it.  


Structure
This Communication Development Program is conducted in a relaxed learning atmosphere where ideas, theories, concepts and experiences are shared. An interactive and fun learning environment is created where participants enjoy contributing. 

The program is highly participatory with extensive use of group exercises combined with individual work to allow participants to learn from their own and each others' successes and mistakes in a safe and supportive environment.

The program is made up of a series of integrated modules.  These modules include:

  • Face-to-face work

  • Whole group and smaller learning group support

  • Individual support

 

Program Design
This Communication Development Program is designed as a coherent programme that addresses all of the topic areas, integrates the individual challenges, and includes a clear strategic thread throughout the program.

 

Assessment Tools 

Both the facilitators and the participants will apply a measure of self-assessment throughout the program to collect data about the effectiveness and receptivity of the concepts presented and methods of delivery.  Formal and informal feedback is gathered throughout the program, evaluating results and sharing that information with the organisation's leadership.  

Coaching 
Coaching is a critical component of this program and is integrated into the overall design.  Individual coaching will be provided by Domino International Ltd as required.

 

Relationship with the Organisation
Establishment of a close business relationship and an excellent working relationship between the organisation and Domino International, built in an environment of trust, openness and support.
