Communicating poorly as a supplier to the supermarket, or internally briefing another department about a supermarket’s needs, can be costly and leave a poor impression with the supermarket. This CPD accredited Communication Skills Training Course supports Learners to get their message across succinctly, effectively, and leaving a positive lasting impression.
This is a 6 month training course of 1+1 ‘classroom days’, 6 months apart, with support in between training days. Designed to make the learning stick using our unique training method Sticky Learning ® and including our ROI guarantee.
Specifically designed to meet the specific and challenging demands of grocery suppliers to major UK supermarkets. This training course will change the way Learners approach communication giving them tools, techniques, and confidence to more better deal with situations, leading to improvements in performance.

Topics Covered in Communication Skills Training
Individuals and teams absolutely depend on being able to communicate with each other because without this ability there are no teams that deliver, no departments that achieve, and no partnerships that work. Effective communication is essential to the success of every business.
Ideal Learners for Communication Training
For everyone that understands that how they communicate has an impact on the impression they leave, how much they get done, and how effectively it gets done. Great communication skills are vital to achieve better performance.
Communication Skills Training Testimonials
“I particularly loved the NLP techniques of ‘El Bow’ and the story about the bumble bee. They will stick with me forever, particularly when I am talking to the buyers”.
Making the Learning Stick for Communication Courses
Hopefully the term ‘Sticky Learning ®’ has intrigued you, whilst you probably guessed a sense of what it is about.
In short Sticky Learning ® is our own unique method that we have developed to help Learners Realise more of what they have learnt, be able to Recall more of what they have learnt, and Retain more of what they have learnt. In 2016 we further upgraded this unique training method to include habits formation as a big part of helping Learners to use more of what they have learnt.
This is good for our clients because it means that the money they spend with us is better invested than with other training providers because the learning is used for longer.
Training Course Duration for this Communication Skills Course
At MBM we no longer offer 1 day courses due to their limited effect.
Our Sticky Learning ® unique training method enables Learners to learn more, learn more quickly, and learn more easily. Sticky Learning ® is a key part of the 6 month training course consisting of pre-work, Learning To Learn 1/2 day training course, a Foundation 1 day training course, and an Advanced 1 day training course (6 months after the Foundation training course).
In between the Foundation training course and the Advanced training course, the Learner will be challenged to complete ‘Sticky Pieces’, which appeals to the 70:20:10 learning model. These are desk based activities that help the Learner to change their behaviour long term by identifying a habit that they wish to adopt to embed the new skill.
The Learner is also given:

Learners Per Course Communication Skills
8 to 12 Learners because this drives enough discussion between the Learners to explore the skill well, whilst not too many that any one learner gets ‘lost’ in the debate. If you do not have 8 to 12 people please checkout our 121 Executive Coaching, which can help just you to learn this skill.
Measuring Return on Investment in Communication Skills Training
There are many evaluation methods for training, each trying to find the holy grail of return on investment. We use Donald Kirkpatrick’s four level training evaluation model as a base because it has stood the test of time, since 1953.
Level 1: Reaction: How did the Learners react to the training?
Level 2: Learning: How much learning did the Learners get?
Level 3: Behaviour: How much have the Learners used the learning?
Level 4: Results: How much effect did the Learner’s learning have on performance?
Few training providers measure the return on investment beyond the level 1 reaction. We have added one further level:
Level 5: Sponsor: How much did we achieve the sponsor’s objectives?

Learning Needs to be Intriguing
To this end of ‘Learning needs to be intriguing’ we name each one of our training courses after a relevant film and we’ll make reference to this on the course.
For our Communication Skills training course we chose ‘Lost in Translation because often emails and conversations get lost and both time and frustration get extended.
This film from 2003, rated R, stars Bill Murray as an actor who develops a rapport with a recent college graduate after a chance meeting in a hotel.
