In this age of information, we have to send, receive, and process huge amounts of information, knowledge, and messages every day.
Effective communication means more than exchanging information. It is a combined set of skills: non-verbals (what people see about you), attentive listening, the ability to manage stress in the present, the capacity to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and in others. It is a learned skill.
Effective communication can deepen your connection to others, improve relationships, teamwork, decision making, and problem solving. Effective communication can make it possible for you to deliver difficult information without creating conflict or destroying trust.
No matter what your job is, you need the ability to work with others effectively. If you are able to bring out the best in those with whom you live and work, the sky is the limit to your success.
