Effective Interpersonal Skills and Communication Techniques

Course Description:

Ever have the experience, when you thought the conversation or meeting went well, and you asked yourself, “Why didn’t they select me, or promote me, or hire me?” 


It could simply be a lack of interpersonal skills or rapport.  In fact, according to the Stanford Research Institute, 85 percent of your success is related to people skills (communication skills/rapport skills), and only 15 percent is related to technical skill and ability.


There’s no doubt about it: Individuals with excellent interpersonal skills rise to the top — in their careers, in their organization, and in life.   


But, their ability to strike up instant rapport, to communicate with tact, and to build effective professional relationships are nothing more than a collection of techniques that you too can learn and cultivate.

Course Highlights:

During this essential skill-building audio conference, Mike Aguilera, author of “Connect with Anyone in 90 Seconds or Less” will guide you through the communication techniques you need to: 

  1. Establish an instant rapport with anyone,
  2. Fine-tune the verbal and physical messages you send, and
  3. Influence others to your way of thinking.


In just 75-minutes, you’ll learn how to stop struggling with interpersonal challenges by exploring:

  • Five rapport killing mistakes that managers make, and how to avoid them
  • Why mindset matters
  • What reframing is and how to use it
  • Body language, vocal tricks and motions to create a rapport in mere seconds
  • How to eliminate those self-sabotaging interpersonal habits that hold you back
  • What to do when the first meeting is on the telephone
  • Key words and gestures to avoid at all costs
