How to Become a More Effective Communicator

Do you ever feel as if your message is not being heard . . . or not coming across the way you intended? Effective communication—at home or in the workplace—requires you to be aware of the messages that you send in three different ways: the words you use, the way you deliver them and your nonverbal cues. You don’t have to be a bully or a doormat! Learn how to communicate messages that are consistent, assertive and effective.
