Effective Manager Communication Just Five Steps Away Award-winning agency introduces e-learning course

CHICAGO, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Grossman Group has put effective manager communication within reach of all managers with the introduction of a new, interactive e-learning course, take5™ to Communicate Well

Built with mid-level managers and supervisors in mind, the course is designed to teach managers at all levels how to plan and deliver effective communications to their employees. Based off a proven model, this course can be quickly applied to a variety of communication situations, as it uses real-life scenarios designed to help managers immediately apply the model to their work.

"One of the biggest challenges managers face today is communicating effectively to their respective audiences, who struggle not because they're bad at communicating, but because they haven't had the training," says David Grossman, ABC, APR Fellow PRSA, founder and CEO of award-winning internal communications and executive leadership firm, The Grossman Group. "I'm excited to take our proven take5 model out of tool form and apply it to e-learning, giving organizations with a dispersed manager population the opportunity to train this all-important audience."

Unlike most e-learning courses used in Fortune 500 companies, take5 is highly interactive. Learners participate in a number of real-life exercises to reinforce key learnings throughout, concluding with a final exercise to apply all principles to one scenario.

The course – made up of three 30 minute modules – tackles the following topics and offers 5 key takeaways:

  • Outcome: Get the results you seek by properly identifying your desired business outcome before you communicate
  • Audience: Identify your audience, their needs and care-abouts to help inform what you communicate
  • Message: Move people to action through proper message development
  • Method: Effectively deliver your message by selecting the best method based on the type of information you want to communicate
  • Measurement: Determine the effectiveness of your communication in real-time through on-the-spot communication measurement techniques

take5 ™ to Communicate Well is available for license in an off-the-shelf and fully customizable format.
