TJwow webinar recording September - communication
Recording of the TJ discussion webinar from September 2016 about communication.
September 15th 10am UK time - COMMUNICATION:
Is communication the most important competency for an L&D professional?
On this discussion webinar was Join Neville Pritchard, ceo of HR in Flow Ltd, Managing Director of Nancarrow Partnerships, Issy Nancarrow, and Con Sotidis, Solutions Architect at Kineo.
Together with the attendees, they discussed that a lot of the problems in organisations are, ultimately, the result of poor communication in one form or another. As a learning and development professional in the 21st century, is communication the core competency of our role now?
Communication skills involve influencing, challenging, questioning, listening and so much more. This can lead to good consultancy and networking skills, along with business and performance focus.
Modern communication also includes a variety of ways to communicate, including remotely and those that are based on technology. How can we manage or be comfortable with these skills in a complex world?
What's your view - that this is the core competency in modern L&D? And if so, how do we manage this and improve this skill?
