The Art of Communication

The Art of Communication:
Creating Shared Meaning

Program Description

Within teams, cross-functionally, up, down, across, and beyond our organizations, we have to be able to communicate so that we may effectively inform, influence, and learn from one another. We need the ability to express needs directly, share information appropriately, solicit information, listen to others, and advocate positions, all while building and maintaining strong relationships.


The Art of Communication™ is a skill-development program focused on creating shared meaning and a common language. The skills are used for moving information and ideas efficiently and effectively within and among organizational units and with key stakeholders. In this intensive and experiential program, you will practice three aspects of communication: message, style, and behaviors. You will develop your communication skills and strategy, gain insight into your communication style and its impact, and recognize and test the assumptions that underlie your own worldview and that of others. You will gain tools that are useful in developing plans for effective communication.
