Listening and Communication Skills -- Part 1

Do you want to be a more effective communicator?  If so, let's begin by taking a quick communication skills assessment. This assessment should take only 2 to 3 minutes.

Communication is the glue that holds organizations together. It affects the outcome of relationships, products, and systems. Simply stated, when you communicate, you share, or make common, your knowledge and ideas with someone else.  Effective communication is sending and receiving a message so that the receiver understands the sender's meaning.  There is often "hidden" meaning in a message which must be deciphered.

Communication gaps are caused by the failure to convey and or understand the information, intent, or meaning of another, especially between individuals with different perceptions.  Stay tuned for more on communication next week!

Until next time...
