There are so many situations in the business world where good communication skills are necessary, it is virtually impossible to name them all. The ability to communicate effectively is a vital life skill and one that should be developed to its fullest.
Whether between a team leader and a team, a customer service rep and a customer, a job applicant and a potential employer, a CEO and the board, the PR director and the press or a sales rep and a potential customer; effective communication is essential.
Now, managers and staff – whether long-term employees or new hires – can develop their communication skills with four new, hilarious and thought-provoking communication training series featuring 'employees' from the Cutting Edge Corporation.
