“Communication skills” remains one of the most sought-after skillsets in our society. Being a “good” communicator often tops the list of desirable traits for people seeking romantic partners and employers hiring for a position. The necessity of communication skills in our society is clear, what is less clear is how we define “communication skills,” and, more importantly, how we define a “good communicator.” Being a good communicator is more than being able to succinctly and strategically craft messages that are easily understood. Communication research demonstrates that being a good or competent communicator necessitates a more complex understanding of communication. This webinar deconstructs the “good communicator” myth and provides “communication competence” as an alternative framework to understand effective communication. Attendees will learn different ways to evaluate the quality of communication and learn techniques to enhance strategic communication goals.

Discover how to:
• Deconstruct the “good communicator” myth
• Evaluate messages using the “communication competence” model of effective communication
• Apply communication competence to strategically craft messages in personal and professional contexts
