Effective Communication

Maintaining effective communication in our personal and in our work relationships require daily attention as it does any other life skill.  We look at it as not a matter of what we say, how we say it, before or after we say it, but includes knowing the core skills involved, such as:

  1. Active listening
  2. Nonverbal communication
  3. Moment to moment stress management
  4. Respect of others in self-assertive communication
