Duration: 70 Minutes
A library of 39 video clips on various aspects of communication, plus a comprehensive guide for using the clips in a number of innovative ways!
Designed for maximum flexibility, The Communication Toolkit provides you with high quality video vignettes that you can use in your own custom training courses. Each vignette/clip runs anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes and depicts a common workplace interaction. Suggestions are provided for using the clips to draw out specific lessons/skills on communication.
The 39 clips in the Toolkit fall into the following communication skill categories:
- Speaking Clearly
- Nonverbal Communication
- Group Communication
- Resolving Conflict & Difficult Conversations
- Presentation Skills
Clips are provided in two formats:
Format 1: The clip is introduced with some brief narration. The narration sets up the scene and gives a very general idea of what to look for in the vignette. As the narration plays, key phrases and words are highlighted through on-screen graphics.
Format 2: The scene plays without any set-up narration/onscreen graphics.
The accompanying Leader's Guide contains the following information for each clip:
- Primary and secondary skills that can be taught using the clip
- Suggested training applications and background information relevant to the clip
- Scene description and photo
- Suggested Discussion Questions along with possible responses and Activity Suggestions
- Key points to draw from the clip
- Ideas for following up on training conducted
- Suggestions for using the clip in conjunction with other clips in the Communication Toolkit
