Communication and assertiveness

Communication allows us to make contact and exchange information with others.

Effective communication is important because it influences all relationships (personal and work) and poor communication can lead to disputes, isolation & misunderstandings.

There are 3 essential skills of good communication: listening to what the other person is saying, expressing what you think and feel and accepting the other person’s opinions and feelings.

We continuously give and receive non-verbal signals which send strong messages.
