Communication skills are at the heart of management. Many managers find that business writing, persuasion, public speaking, and nonverbal communication become their most important skills as they leave behind some of their production-related skills they used before becoming managers.
In this section, you’ll learn communications applications of MIT’s Advanced Management Training program. You’ll start the section learning persuasion skills that can be applied to business writing projects, presentations, and public speaking engagements. Then, you’ll develop management communication skills--that is, internal communication skills (skills that help you with team management and change management projects, for example). Then you’ll build your visual communication and nonverbal communication skills, because images (e.g. photos, graphics, videos) are becoming an essential part of business communication as the communication networks are increasingly-capable of transmitting videos, livestreams, and other visual communication modalities.
