COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Essential Strategies for Improving Your Interpersonal 

Effective communication

Effective communication is essential for building strong relationships, both personal and professional. Whether we  are at work, at home, or in social situations, we rely on our ability to communicate effectively to build strong relationships with others, express our needs and wants, and achieve our goals.

Active listening, one of the most important skills, involves fully concentrating on what the other person is saying and demonstrating that you understand their message. This means maintaining eye contact, nodding, and providing verbal cues, etc.

Non-verbal communication is an essential part of effective communication, and it can be just as important as what you say. Your body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice  all convey powerful messages.
