Workplace Communication Training
Language is the medium of all communication between humans. Be it in the written, spoken, or gestured format, it is the mighty bridge through which all of our ideas, thoughts, emotions, and more are conveyed through this skill. The workplace is no exception to this rule as a lot of communication is spread between peers, coworkers, clients, and even between organisations themselves to perform a range of actions.
Here at Paramount Training and Development we understand the need for both the ability to conduct regular conversations with a manager or supervisor as well as the precise language needed for complicated tasks. We also understand how learning it can be a daunting if not impossible task, especially for those who may have disadvantages or preexisting conditions that can hamper communication. Workplace Communication Training was developed to meet the demands of the linguistically challenge and provide them with strategies and tools to assist them to become more effective communicators.
The demand for communication in the workplace is constant. The ability quickly and precisely convey ideas and orders is indispensable. Learning how to adapt your language to suit your audience, whether you face a coworker, superior, or client, is invaluable. One’s ability to speak, understand, adapt to, and communicate through language is what makes us human and plays a vital role within the world of business. As such someone with the technical and practical knowledge to do so is valuable. Paramount Training and Development sees that value in such a specialist and to that end created a Workplace Communication Training course to meet this precise demand. Contact us for more details.
Know about the many kinds of language within the workplace
Just as how American English and British English have their own little differences but still find themselves under the umbrella of the English language, so too are the many little languages present in most places of employment with their own precise syntax, morphology, phonetics, and structure, which despite all being derived from the same mother tongue all have their own different little meanings that can be vastly different between workplaces. Learners of Workplace Communication Training are first expected to master these subtle differences and will have the opportunity to do so thanks to our experts’ vast knowledge on the relative fields of study that they can then transmit to our learners through lessons and experimental methods derived from studies from the relevant fields.
Explain their formation and their existence
Workplace Languages have their own unique jargon and other components that exist for a reason. Learners are taught some of the fundamentals of all human language to help explain why certain professions need their own kind of language to communicate in the way that is most appropriate for their workplace. It is also the aim of these lessons to allow the learners to infer and learn facets and aspects of their current and future employment through these languages and have a better, more holistic understanding of both the language and their place of employment.
Become sensitive to the demands of context
As with language as a whole, statements, utterances, and the like are all subjected to the rigors of context. Part of the environment, the person you’re speaking to, and the task at hand can all change the intended meaning. This adds an extra layer of weakness, as it ends up adding an additional later of material that one needs to process. A more concrete example would be how a staff member communicates between a coworker and a superior, where one form of language is acceptable to one, and can lead to an employee’s immediate expulsion for the other.
This is vital, especially in the workplace, where context can completely change the meaning of a statement. Learners of Workplace Communication will be well-informed and equipped to properly interpret statements with context in mind.
Learn how to effectively communicate with Workplace Language
Using lessons and theories learned, learners are then expected to successfully employ all that they’ve learned to effectively communicate in the workplace using both general English and the language or jargon that their current workplace then presents to them. This will be achieved thanks to the various lessons, strategies, methods, and systems that have been taught to our learners by experts in the relevant fields. The aim is to cover both more casual interactions between coworkers and senior leaders, as well as interactions done while conducting fieldwork where the linguistic side of their learning is expected to play a more prominent role.
Employ strategies and methods to streamline communication
In most workplace environments certain linguistic phenomenon begin to emerge; shorthand phrases with specific meanings, jargon; words which usually mean something extremely specific and specially adapted to the context of the environment appear, and other strange abbreviations, sentence structures, and so on, that need to be examined or at least taught to fully understand. Those undertaking Workplace Communication training are taught to observe the formation of these workplace linguistic phenomenon in other workplaces, see how they work and can be used effectively, and then attempt to create or at least adapt their own workplace language; all the while observing the benefits, and pitfalls of workplace linguistics for newcomers and outsiders.
