How Women Can Develop & Improve Their Communication Skills to Engage & Influence Others
“Communication skills” has become a hackneyed phrase we hear over and over again, but what does it really mean? It’s far more than being able to speak up at a meeting or give a client presentation that brings in the account. Communication refers to everything we say and write and do when interacting with someone else in any medium. It refers to how we share our ideas and our values, our ambitions and our disappointments—even how we have learned from our mistakes.
People respond to everything they see in us. They listen to our stories, not unlike the way ancient tribes listened to the elders before thoughts and experiences were written down. It’s vital that we know how to open ourselves to others, what to say and when to say it. When we control the communication, we steer people in the direction we want them to take. During the next 30 minutes, you’ll hear an expert in both communication and leadership teach you the communication skills every successful woman must know.
