What are Communication Skills?

Communication is the act of moving information. Communication between people can take place directly from person to person using voice and words (vocal and verbal communication), and nonverbally through the use of body language, gestures, and visual aids. We also communicate using various emotional cues that can be extremely subtle. Communication Skills are the tools that we use to be able to communicate effectively with others.

Listening Skills

Truly effective communication is a collaborative process that builds consensus and understanding. If you’re not listening actively, and you’re not really ‘in the moment’, then you’re likely to miss something important.
