WHY?
How to work
with one another
How we communicate
with each other
during school
at events
any other times?
Have you ever...
Encountered that one person with whom you just couldn't communicate?
OR
had days when you felt like you were speaking a foreign language and no one else could understand what you were saying?
Or
Maybe...
tried to communicate with a friend, with whom you normally communicate well, but couldn't get them to see your side?
Well, consider this:
Each person approaches projects and conversation differently
Most people approach professional life differently than personal life
Sometimes, understanding how you may be perceived can help you understand how to better communicate.
