Effective Communication Skills

Ineffective communication in the workplace is often at the heart of many issues within teams, between managers and team members, and individual performance.

Commonly, we can be oblivious to the way our verbal and non-verbal communication affects others around us. Yet, we can all learn to become more self-aware and improve our communication skills as well as change the way we react to others in order have a more successful outcome.
