Toronto – December 20, 2012 – New webCampus courses for the New Year are now open for registration to all UFCW Canada members, families and community allies.
The two new courses both start on Friday, January 7, 2013 and run until Friday, February 1, 2013.
The new courses are:
Communicating with Confidence – Public Speaking (currently offered only in English)
The purpose of communication is to get your message across to others clearly. The way we communicate with others can greatly change (positively or negatively) the relationships we have with them. Communication is only successful when both the sender and the receiver understand the same information. By successfully getting your message across, you express your thoughts and ideas effectively.
This course will provide you with the understanding and tools that will help you communicate with confidence when others are listening.
Stress Awareness – Part 2 (currently offered only in French)
This 15-hour Stress Awareness Course follows from Stress Awareness Part 1 and will provide participants with a full knowledge of stress and its impact on health and will encourage participants to cope more effectively with stress and to develop strategies to change stressful conditions.
Topics include: Workplace Stressors; Strategies for Coping with Stress; and Strategies for Changing Workplace Stressors.
