I had an opportunity to work closely with Ed [from Procommskills.com] for a communication skills training course for trainee psychiatrists in Cairo. Ed encouraged direct engagement of the trainees with a friendly and facilitative approach. At the same time, he was also able to clearly identify and indicate where they needed improvement and gave thoughtful feedback on their performances throughout the course. It was a pleasure to work with him, and needless to say, I thoroughly recommend his services for professionals organizing communication skills training
What are communication skills?
Communication skills are integral to how we interact with each other. We use them every day in countless ways.
From the way we introduce ourselves, to the use of empathy and even the tilt of our head, these communication traits have a greater effect on how we interact with others than words alone.
To get by today in the professional world, to pass exams and to do our jobs, good communication skills are essential.
The use of role-play and simulation in the training and assessment of communication skills is used more and more, as it provides several key benefits such as standardisation, consistent repeated scenarios, impartial feedback, risk free environment.
