Leadership Skills – Business Communication

“How we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”

brings you a toolkit to understand the communication process and develop essential communication skills. Communication results in understanding between two people when the initiated and intended message is closely received and responded to by the other person. Whenever two people are in the presence of each other, they are communicating. Communication skills are acquired more than they are innate. The definitions of the words are found in dictionaries, the meanings of the words are the interpretation given by the recipient of the communication. The meaning people get from your communication has more to do with your actions than your words.

Find out why effective communication is essential to your success within a team. Develop listening and questioning skills that encourage team member contribution and involvement. Develop feedback skills that lead to team cooperation and accountability.
