Interpersonal Communications for Auction Professionals (ICAP)

Interpersonal communication is the process by which people exchange information, feelings, and meaning through verbal and non-verbal messages. The two-day class will provide participants an opportunity to enhance their interpersonal communications skills with techniques and opportunities for insight and self-awareness through educational, situational and practical exercises. Proper use and knowledge of these skills will positively affect your negotiations with clients, presentation skills, auctioneering and competition strategies.

The next ICAP session will be offered at Designation Academy December 11-12, 2020
