Test Your Communication Skills

How good are your communication skills ?

Communication is fundamental to human development and is the most important skill to progress in the workplace. Communication is the exchange of information, idea, feelings etc between two or more people. However simple it may sound but we all come across situations where misunderstandings and confusion arise of poor communication.

If you want to be an expert communicator, you need to be effective at all points in the communication process – and you must be comfortable with the different channels of communication. When you communicate well, you can be very successful. On the other hand, poor communicators struggle to develop their careers beyond a certain point.

So are you communicating effectively? Take this short quiz to find out ??
