What is Communication Skills ?
Communication is the giving, receiving or exchange of information, opinions or ideas by writing, speech or visual means so that the material communicated is completely understood. Good communication matters because business organisations are made up of people.
Typically, managers spend 75 to 80 percent of their time engaged in some form of communication. Communication is the essence of management. The basic functions of management cannot be performed well without effective communication.
In the past, I lacked confidence and the ability to communicate with others. Now, having successfully completed the eLearning Communications course in just under three days, Imy communication techniques have improved many times over.

In school, I excelled in written communication, but face-to-face communication was a big challenge because I come across people with different personalities and who speak different languages. Following this course, I am more at ease when communicating orally.
