effective communication and information sharing


For those responsible for teams of staff in social care settings. The course is equally relevant for new or aspiring managers as it is for those who have held posts for some time.

why attend?

As manager’s we are often clear about our direction and purpose but unless we can communicate our vision and targets effectively to others, frustration and poor service delivery can be the result.

This course seeks to explore effective methods of getting messages across, why things go wrong and to look at the why the manager is key in these processes.

It will look at:

  • Our own communication and reflection on our own interpersonal skills
  • The many formats and methods of communication with all stakeholders
  • Effective meetings - chairing and attending
  • Record keeping and report writing
  • Storing information
  • Analysing information

In addition to the above, group work and discussion will form a significant part of the day and there will be many opportunities for participants to compare strategies they have used or experienced and share these as part of their learning.
