The Building Blocks of Communication
From the moment we walk into the workplace each day, we are communicating with others. We talk. We listen. We write numerous types of documents, from email to text messages to reports and speeches. We “speak” without talking through our non-verbal behavior, gestures, and professional attire. How we communicate has a direct impact on our relationships with others and our ability to perform our jobs with confidence. The more skilled we are, the greater chance we have for personal and professional success.
