The Management, Science and Coaching of the Great North Run

The Management, Science and Coaching of the Great North Run module was very beneficial as I developed an awareness and importance to identify what intercultural skills are by meeting international students who were not familiar with the United Kingdom.
I have learned that communicating effectively with international students to ensure they understand why and when they have a task to do is mandatory to providing a reliable and trustworthy relationship with them, and by inviting and acknowledging any feedback the students may have. Excellent communication also builds and contributes to an efficient and honest work place and academic culture encouraging two-way discussions by information being shared at all levels. Effective networking and showing a willingness to understand others needs by using my ability to develop mutually beneficial relationships between myself and other organisations. I learned to communicate efficiently by responding to requests effectively by striving to gather information, and by building relationships through regular contact and personal meetings. Effective communication helps to develop others by relating and interacting with others. Being able to communicate wants and needs, feelings, thoughts and to learn how to interpret other's in turn.
I learned how to develop and sustain effective working relationships with colleagues, management and staff and I am always willing to consider other points of view showing acceptance of other timescales, priorities and workloads by agreeing with other work colleagues to do specific tasks at times, and roles.
