The business environment of the 21st century is fast moving, competitive and highly dependent on effective communication. Leadership in this environment requires both, technical knowledge, and interpersonal prowess. Leaders and managers must be able to articulate vision and strategy, and possess the ability to motivate, persuade, and develop others in the pursuit of their goals.
The COMMUNICATION AND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (CAMP) is a unique learning and development opportunity designed exclusively for those whose responsibilities require impactful interaction with others. CAMP introduces participants to effective interpersonal communication techniques. More specifically, CAMP identifies and strengthens individual communication skills and areas of need through intense one on one coaching. It is this unique one on one relationship which allows for precise identification and development of needed communication skills that is the most valuable component of CAMP.
