Improving Your Communication Skills

Effective communication is more than exchanging words. It is about picking up on the intentions and emotions that go along with the words. It is not only how you speak a message so that it is received and understood by someone in the exact way you intended, it is also how you listen to understand the full meaning of what is being said and making the other person feel heard and understood. Learning effective communication tools will make a big difference in negotiating and will increase your confidence.
