Why Hone Your Communication Skills?
An important part of being a successful professional is being an effective communicator. Honing your communication skills will impact your earning potential. It is a learned skill and takes practice. Communication is more than just an exchange of information. It is about learning a skill set that includes verbal, vocal and non-verbal communication and active and reflective listening. Your message is more than the words you say; it is how you say them. Only about 7% of your message is your words and over 50% of your message is non-verbal.
