The course 'Communication Skills - Basics' helps PhD researchers to develop their communication skills with focus on important topics such as active listening, asking insightful questions, being assertive, and interpreting non-verbal signals. It’s about strengthening your communication skills as transferable skills that you can benefit from in many different contexts. 

During this one-day course, you will learn how to effectively use the important communication skills that you need in your professional and personal life. We’ll work with recognizable situations and examples and you will get just enough theoretical background to make sure that you can apply the methods and theory in your daily practice. This course is designed for anyone who wants to strengthen or expand the basic skills in communication.

You will learn 10 ways to improve your communication skills, but even if you choose one of them and master it, you’ll enjoy better conversations.
