How to improve your communication skills?

  • Listen with your eyes: Use the visual cues effectively & consciously.
  • Disperse advice sparingly: More often than not, people don't actually need advice; they just want a sympathetic listener.
  • Never break confidence: Despite your need to show off, never break confidence in what someone told you in private.
  • Complete the loop: Staying silent is negative feedback. Always acknowledge the speaker.
  • Feel honored: Understand it is a great gift when people trust you. Bear the responsibility wisely.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

“

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
