Do you need to give feedback to colleagues and clients, but you aren’t sure how to do it without bruising someone’s ego (or being totally ignored)? Do you find yourself hoping that interpersonal conflicts will resolve themselves, without you having to actually address them? Have you ever had to present your ideas to a client or the boss, and wished the floor would open up and swallow you before you had to stand up to speak?
If you are a busy professional who knows that your job -- and your career -- depend on you being able to communicate clearly and concisely, with confidence and credibility, then this user-friendly, engaging course is for you!
Welcome to Smart Tips: Communication! In this course I’ll provide short lectures to help you do something new - fast, so that you can immediately apply it to your work or life. The videos in this course are standalone. That means you don’t have to watch in any particular order. If you’re searching for a specific skill or topic that’s relevant for you, take a look through the available tips to find the knowledge you need when you need it.
I created this practical Udemy course for anyone who wants to have more impact and influence at work -- and in life. And becoming a more effective communicator is the way to do that. I have been teaching and coaching on communication and presentation skills for over three decades, across industries and around the world, including Fortune 50 companies, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and Ivy League academic institutions. This course represents my most requested, most tested, and most well-reviewed tips, tools, and techniques that I use with my clients.
There’s absolutely nothing long, boring, theoretical, complex, or confusing in this course. This course is built specifically for any professional in any industry at any level of his or her career who wants to get targeted, quick, practical help to sound persuasive and polished in a variety of conversations and presentations.
In this course, you will learn to:
Address difficult colleagues, clients, customers, and others while keeping your cool
Apply emotionally intelligent strategies to challenging conversations and situations
Manage up, down, and across your organization to have greater impact and influence
Give effective feedback that people can hear -- and act on
Ask for the feedback you need to do your job more successfully
Receive feedback without defensiveness
Organize and present your ideas persuasively
Speak to audiences of any size and in any situation with less anxiety
Demonstrate leadership presence, even under stress
Handle difficult questions with confidence
Think on your feet
From Presentation Skills lectures like Stop Beginning Your Speeches with 'Good Morning and Thank You' and Start With This Instead (2 minutes and 30 seconds) and Navigating Conflict and Tricky Conversations lectures like What to Say To Someone Who Just Got Bad News at Work (2 minutes) to Communicating with Impact and Influence lectures like 3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Pitching an Idea to Your Boss (3 minutes and 30 seconds) and Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback lectures like The Right Way to Respond to Negative Feedback (4 minutes and 30 seconds), you’ll quickly accumulate the confidence and competence to say what you need to say, when you need to say it.
This course is fast-paced and fun (yes, really!), and you’ll get the best of the best from my years of experience teaching and coaching busy professionals at all levels, my commitment to using research-based strategies from psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, etc., my personal experience as a parent of twins (talk about conflict!) -- as well as a taste of my background in stand-up and improvisational comedy. (Yes, when I said fun -- I meant it!)
What are you waiting for? (You could already have learned 3 new skills in the time it took you to read this!) Join thousands of other busy professionals like yourself and give yourself a competitive, communicative edge to help you advance in your job and career.

Do you want to improve your social skills for business? Do you want to be able to interact with people confidently, authentically and effectively in business?
Business etiquette skills are incredibly important for new graduates, early-stage professionals, senior level executives, and those who want to work in the western business world.
When you are skilled in business etiquette, you will have an edge over your competition. You will be able to connect better with clients and coworkers. It will make doing business easier, smoother and more profitable for you.
Imagine walking into a networking event knowing exactly what to do and who to talk with. Imagine knowing how to really connect with somebody in a natural, authentic way. Imagine being able to lead a conversation and have that person walk away liking and trusting you.
All of this is possible and skills in business etiquette will help you achieve it.
I’m Kara Ronin. I’m a Best-Selling Udemy Instructor, business etiquette and leadership coach, and workshop facilitator. I specialise in helping people develop their social skills in business, leadership presence, communication, and business relationships.
I’ve helped many of my in-person clients use skills in business etiquette to land new jobs, build their reputation and win over clients. I’m dedicated to helping you do the same in this video course.
“This business etiquette course was extremely useful for a young woman who is starting her career in the financial industry. I would highly recommend it to others in the same position.” - Ana
“A well-organised course delivered in a concise and engaging way. Thank you Kara for breaking down the basic skills and providing a practical guide in how to achieve success.” - Kate
The professional world today is fiercely competitive and you have to go one extra mile to stay on your career trajectory. How do you remain employable? How do you stand out from the crowd?
Despite what you might think, learning more technical skill is often not the answer. But improving, enhancing and developing your business etiquette and social skill is the key to sustained employment and professional success.
Think of it this way: For two people who have a comparable level of education and skill, what separates these two people when it comes to success is their ability to connect with others, engage in conversation, and communicate their true potential to decision-makers in their industry.
In other words, what separates these two people when it comes to success, is their level of social skill in business.
Remember, hard skills might get you hired but lack of soft skills will get you fired.
In this course, you will
become known as a professional with a high level of social skill and soft skill
know how to get clients and coworkers to know, like and trust you
understand why focusing on your executive wardrobe is so important for a great first impression
know how to create an executive wardrobe (men and women) for a polished, professional brand
conquer networking events with confidence and strategy
master your conversations to appear intelligent and competent
start to manage your online presence and reputation online
This course is heavily focused on building the know, like and trust factor. Why? Because business is done with people. Building, nurturing, and fostering relationships with your colleagues, clients and boss is critical to your professional success.
Business Etiquette 101: Social Skills for Success is a focused, fun and engaging video course.
You will learn intelligent insights into human behavior, and actionable strategies that will help you build a stronger professional brand, connect better with colleagues and clients, and give you the confidence to excel in business.
There is over 3.5 hours of video content, a custom designed workbook, presentation slides, and quizzes to deepen your learning.
BONUS: There is a bonus 90-page ebook in Lecture 13 titled, “Networking 101: Social Skills for Business Success” which is normally priced at US$47 on my website.

What you won’t learn in this course is boring, stuffy, out-of-date advice that you can’t apply to modern life today.

Then this course is perfect for you!
Lingual Net's Super Learner Fluency Course is designed to help you become a more fluent, confident, and engaged speaker of English.
In this course, Dr. Michael Rost, will teach you powerful communication strategies. You will learn the secrets to successful conversation.
Dr. Michael Rost is a well-known researcher and teacher trainer. He has a Ph.D. in Linguistics and has written several books and articles on English communication.
Dr. Rost has identified the "secrets" that turn you into a "super learner." These "secrets" are actually strategies and study habits that successful language learners use.
In this course, we focus on the topic of "Food". We will focus on five main questions:
What’s your favorite food?
Is there any food you dislike?
How important is diet to your health?
What are some popular foods for visitors to your country?
What is one popular dish in your country? Can you describe it in detail?
We will watch three different interviews, where the students — just like you – are asked these same five questions. And we’re going to focus on their communication strategies. And then we’re going to follow up with some study skills in pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.
You will have the opportunity to study grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and speaking strategies through the course Workbook, online quizzes, and online forums.
OK, are you ready?

Mastery Of Conversations
The skill of being able to communicate effectively and engage in conversations is not as common as you might think.
We think of conversation skills as a 'foundation' communication skill - one you can build on to develop a wide range of other social skills.
Social skills are not something everyone is born with, especially if you're an introvert - but it doesn't need to stay that way.
You don't need to be the loudest, most extroverted person in the room to engage positively with other people and have a great time in social settings, you just need the knowledge and skills in your 'social toolbox' so you can take your interactions to the next level.
In this course we'll cover a range of topics including;
Understanding successful conversations
This course includes specific tips and advice for a range of situations; ranging from work, to parties and everything in between.
The beauty is that these skills can transfer to any social situation and go hand-in-hand with other social skills.
We've utilised specific tips and techniques as well as targeted examples to pack a lot of value into this short-course so you can easily absorb everything we've put together and build up your confidence in as short a time as possible.
3 Steps To Improve Your Communications Skills
Learn how to Improve communication skills and take control of conversations by applying Ontological Methods.
Created by Thushyanthan A - Teacher, Leadership Life Coach, Jyotiṣa

Students: 1778, Price: Paid
In this course, you will learn to become aware of your body, emotions, and language so you can choose and control how they impact the way you converse with others and interact with the world around you.
This course explores the intention (or purpose) of conversation. The way we can become effective communicators is to learn what it is we're actually saying. When we know what we're saying, then we understand how we see the world.
To put it another way: we can choose to engage in full, rich, satisfying conversations with others through understanding language use and how our word selection reflects our perception of and expectation from human interactions.
We learn how to improve communication skills through the six speech acts:
Through practice, we become skilled at conversation with our networks, bosses, colleagues, teams, friends, and loved ones.
By the end of this course, you'll understand how the actions you take in your life – based on the Ontological Methods you learn in the course videos and materials – can lead to new perspectives, great conversations, and increased opportunities for positive human connection.
What Is Ontological Coaching?
Ontology, as taught by the Newfield Network, is the knowledge of how you are "being" in the world through your body/movement, thoughts/emotions, and language. Your body, thoughts and language are all interrelated. When you change one of these three components, you cause the other two to change or shift – for better or worse.
Ontology affects your conversations and their outcomes at work, home, and play. Conversation is more than talk; it's about how we move our bodies, feel and interpret emotions, and choose our words.

English language becomes full of life with Modal Verbs. You can't express your emotions, feelings, thoughts or ideas without Modal Verbs in English language. You must learn Modal Verbs deeply if you want that your expression or statement should convey the exact meaning what you actually want to convey to your listeners or readers. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations when we have some thoughts, ideas, feelings or emotions inside us which we want to communicate but we are unable to express them properly due to the lack of proper knowledge of Modal Verbs. In short, It's a great tool in English Grammar to make your thoughts come to words in a powerful manner. If you don't have a sound understanding of English Modal Verbs, you might convey a wrong meaning unintentionally. This course enables you to grasp minute differences of modal verbs which otherwise sound similar. It gives you the power to convey right meaning at the right time.
But you needn't worry. This course has been designed in a very unique style to help you learn Modals quickly in a very easy and interesting manner. All the concepts have been categorized on the basis of similar uses to eliminate confusion, instead of studying one by one in the traditional way. Real life situations visually supported by animated images have been used for easier absorption of the content. Situations have been studied in a comparative manner for imbibing the concept to the root level. Tables and charts have been used wherever necessary for the purpose of comparative study. This course will suit to every type of learner. Don't feel worried about your previous knowledge. Learner's pace of learning has been kept in mind while designing the course. You will feel involved in the course.
You may have noticed that you have just read some modal verbs written in bold letters like can, should, must, might, will, may, needn't etc. Exercise for practice has been provided at the end of each lecture and mixed Practice Tests have been provided in the second section of practice tests to test all the concepts in one go. Students may wish to pause the video as they think fit before seeing the solution. Your feedback will be most valuable for me.
You may want to use EARPHONES for better audio experience.

Business Analysis Soft Skills: Conversations and Workshops
How to Effectively Communicate with Stakeholders to Discover User Stories, Features, and Non-functional Requirements
Created by Tom and Angela Hathaway - BA-EXPERTS: Business Analysis for Anyone Wearing the BA Hat
Students: 874, Price: $79.99
Students: 874, Price: Paid
How Can You Effectively Communicate with Your Stakeholders?
A lot of initial uncertainty at the beginning of an IT project comes from not knowing how to approach stakeholders to get their requirements. Should you interview each stakeholder individually or in groups? Whom should you interview first? What can you do to guide stakeholders to give you the information you need to formulate the right requirements?
Unfortunately getting other stakeholders to express their needs and wants vis-à-vis a proposed IT solution is a non-trivial challenge. On top of that, you might be dealing with cross-functional needs which complicates the task even more.
To meet that challenge, we propose that you need to hone your interpersonal skills, in particular your interviewing skills. If you have never interviewed another person before, this task alone can be intimidating.
Why Should You Take This Course?
Since interviewing other people for requirements is not an intuitive skill, this course presents a wide range of techniques for planning, preparing, and performing requirements elicitation interviews and workshops as well as polishing and publishing the results. It defines the characteristics of a good requirements interviewer to help you recognize areas for personal growth.
To guide you through the intricacies of conducting group interviews, it includes expert advice on facilitating effective Requirements Workshops (ie. JAD, RDW, User Story Workshops, Requirements Gathering Workshops, etc.), a powerful requirements elicitation technique for managing cross-functional group meetings on traditional and Agile software development methodologies.

During our workshops with many students in Altinbas University in Istanbul, and various enterprise employee, we developed this course's outline.
Whether you love standing around and chatting or cringe at the thought of yet another “forced” conversation, being a good conversationalist is important for both networking and forming office relationships. So, let’s talk—specifically, about how you can improve your conversational skills.
It can be hard to talk to other people sometimes! Whether you’re talking with a friend or someone you just met, there are some basic conversational skills you can practice to make yourself more confident and welcoming. Try to be positive and engaged when speaking to another person, giving them your full attention. Ask open-ended questions to keep the conversation flowing, and give cues, like nodding your head, to show that you’re listening. The main thing to remember is that you want your attention to be directed at the person, and not at your phone or anything else surrounding you. It’s okay if you glance away and break eye contact once in a while, but in general, try to watch the other person as much as you can.
