Valuable Training Tips from Linda Hensel

Training/Development Leader Linda Hensel

Linda Hensel made her second guest appearance in “The Communication Corner,” my Tuesday morning interview program on WBCX-FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” On her initial guest shot, she talked about maximizing your vocal skills.

Among the subjects Linda discussed:

–Why expenditures for training and development should not be reduced during tough economic times

–Advantages of having the organization’s leader participate in training sessions
–Dealing with shy participants and their opposites, excessive talkers

Dr. Bill Haney’s Communication Pointers

With Business Professor Dr. Bill Haney

The term business communication comes close to being redundant, because in order to maintain a successful business you must practice compelling communication–from top to bottom, internally and externally, today and tomorrow.

Dr. Bill Haney, Professor of Business Administration at Brenau University, gave important business communication guidelines as my guest in “The Communication Corner,” the hour-long interview show I host weekly for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” The program airs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. ET, and appears as a re-broadcast Thursdays at 6:00 a.m.

During our high-energy conversation, Dr. Haney spoke about these topics, among others:

*”Brenau Business Briefs,” the program he hosts for WBCX
*Communication skills required for success in management
*Profile of today’s typical college student
*How higher education has become genuinely international
*How technology has helped instructors make learning more interesting and memorable
*Why business etiquette is essential for leadership roles
*Value of learning foreign languages
*How U.S. higher education compares to that of other countries
