Communication is the key to how we connect with others. Whether we are speaking, listening or simply being, we are sending and receiving messages. What messages are you sending? Which messages do you mean to send and which are unintentional?
Professionally, we may get hired because of our technical skills, but we get promoted by how we communicate, how we connect with others. Personally, what we say and do not say in relationships often affects the health of a relationship – how it comes to life, its longevity and how it may wither and die. The way in which we communicate helps, or hinders, our relationships professionally and personally.
