We all communicate everyday, but do our messages come across clearly? Pitch, tone and body language are just a few of the factors you need to consider, in addition to the words spoken. In a perfect world everyone would understand what we said all of the time. Unfortunately, sometimes there is a misunderstanding between what we say and how that is understood.
Personalities need to be considered when communicating. This course explores dynamics which can lead to frustration when communicating with others. You will have a greater understanding of how to adapt your communications to obtain the best results when working with colleagues.
