- Does your interpersonal communication need to catch up to your career skills?
- Do you find it challenging working with others on team projects?
- Are you uncomfortable speaking in front of groups?
We get it – you spent your early professional career trying to get to the top. The top coder, top technician, top designer, top insert-your-skill set here. But somehow, along the way, you forgot that to be at the top you need to be a top communicator, too. Maybe you’ve remained in your comfort zone, but now you’re ready to move up and don’t have the communication skills necessary to do so. Or perhaps you’ve already moved up the ladder but are finding it challenging to communicate effectively with the people under you. Maybe you’re just uncomfortable in social situations, even the ones related to your skill set. Whatever the reason may be, you’re stuck in a communication breakdown and need a way out. Or, perhaps you’ve always realized the importance of good communication skills and you want to brush up with the current best practices and earn a professional certificate to show for it. Well, look no further than the Rutgers Online Certificate in Business and Managerial Communication.
This certificate program will address a number of communication topics business and organizations need, from the reminders of what we already know but should be doing more of or better, to more complicated theories. This program begins by addressing your own communication style. How can you hone your strengths and improve upon your weaknesses unless you identify them? Then you’ll begin identifying different types of communication and how they differ – the way you speak in an internal meeting or at a conference should be different than the way you write or present to clients. Furthermore, you’ll learn how to effectively work in teams, exploring theories and best practices with your fellow classmates and instructors.
