WLDP - 6. Communication

WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme modules

The WLDP Leadership Resources are modules available to trainers, which will support Member Organizations in developing leadership development activities, events and workshops for new, existing and potential leaders. These modules include theory, individual and group exercises and guided reflection on the topics. 

Please note: The materials are offered as support materials and not as an alternative to a full WLDP event.

6. Communication

I am 1 in 10 million!

Communicating is not just sharing words and grasping them. It is the whole transformation of visions, ideas and thoughts from an unconscious knowledge in one person through articulation, transfer, perception, and incorporation into the lives of ‘listeners’. This communication travels back again through feedback, with the aim of mutual understanding.

Communication is what binds lives and individuals together, or divides them.

There are many theories, models, articles and books of on communication amongst people, so this module concentrates on how you, as a leader within a volunteer female organization, can be aware of and use communication effectively. This includes how you can develop your own communication skills. 

This module is designed to help you to identify and apply a range of communication skills to enhance your leadership effectiveness.
