learnit Cooperating and communicating effectively

Collaboration and effective communication course

Although working together is something you do together, you can work on your cooperation skills. How can you improve your skills?

Of course, cooperation has everything to do with communication. That is why, in our two-day training Working Together and Communicating Purposefully , we work on the communication skills that are necessary for good cooperation. We will look at who you are, what your motives are, how you are and how you can get more out of yourself. In addition, the cooperation process is important: How can you delineate and set good, achievable goals? In practice, everything always goes slightly differently than planned. That is why we also pay attention to flexibility and setting priorities.


During the training the following topics, among others, will be discussed:

  • Communicating (talking and listening):

    Understanding both sides of the communication process

  • Active listening:

    Listening is an important part of good communication

  • Summarising and following up on conversations:

    Summarising and following up on conversations lets your interlocutor know that you take them seriously

  • Keeping appointments:

    On time and as agreed do what you promise

  • Giving and receiving feedback:

    The feedback rules

  • Motivate:

    Motivation of yourself and the person you are working with

  • Dealing with diversity (personality structures):

    Every person is different. It is important to be able to deal with different people in different ways.

  • Negotiating:

    Negotiating is not only about "what's in it for me?", but also about giving something to the other party.

  • Setting goals (SMART):

    Targeting a goal using the SMART model (specific, measurable, acceptable, realistic and time-based)


After the training you will have worked on:

  • the communication process;
  • your own communication skills and
  • all aspects of the cooperation process

Target group

This training is ideally suited for participants who want to get more out of their cooperation with others. Do you recognise yourself in one or more of the points below?

  • You sometimes get stuck in cooperation with others
  • You want to make the best use of the qualities of yourself and others
  • You want to sharpen your social and tactical skills

This list is of course not exhaustive, as everyone is different: What do you want to pay attention to in the area of cooperation?

Teaching methodology

In the training we alternate between concrete experience, experimenting with behaviour and techniques, reflecting and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of new behaviour. This enables the recognition of success. We also emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it. In our training we invite you to continuously reflect and make connections with practice. Our aim is to increase your insight and to let you make the translation yourself. This will increase the chance of real behavioural change.
