Communication Guide and Presentation


Consider the following scenario: Your Learning Team makes up the training department of a thriving company that has grown quickly, leading to inconsistencies in communication practices.

  • building relationships
  • running meetings and facilitating group communication
  • conflict resolution and negotiation

Research strategies and best practices for improving these communication skills in the workplace.


Select relevant content to share with employees, considering the following:

  • Audience – What does this audience need to know?

  • Establishing credibility – How will you get your audience to trust your information?
  • Tone and word choice – What language is appropriate to use for this situation?

  • The most relevant content from your outlined guide
  • Any relevant and appropriate graphics, visuals, audio, or video
  • One title slide and one references slide
