Students who have participated in the Young Talent Programs have had the opportunity to improve their communication and leadership skills in decision-making.

“Effective and assertive communication skills will contribute to your personal and professional success”

Currently, using communication effectively, knowing how to communicate and transmit correctly, is one of the most demanded competencies by companies. Adequate communication is a skill that can make a big difference and increase the chances of success in any situation, both personal and professional.

In the seminar developed within the Young Talent Programs, participants have experienced and learned through dynamics and practical activities to enhance their assertive and effective communication. They have worked on key aspects of effective communication such as emitting clear and concise messages, appropriate tone of voice, body language, looking into the eyes of the receiver, etc., and also understanding better the importance of taking into account the other person’s point of view, calmly dialoguing and conveying respect for the ideas of others.

The workshop, sponsored by multinational Leroy Merlin, took place on Wednesday, May 10th, at the Faculty of Economics and Business and was taught by Luis Ortega, an expert in communication and negotiation techniques.
