Overview/Description
Communication works best when your intention is clear, your audience is engaged, and your verbal and nonverbal behavior are respectful. When you hit these notes, you'll build trust with the people you communicate with. To maintain that trust, you also have to be aware of and manage emotions – yours and those of others.
