In order to communicate effectively, individuals have to master the techniques of effective listening and self-expression. These skills involve verbal and non-verbal behaviours as well as the ability to speak with persuasion and confidence.

It addresses key communication elements such as listening actively and presenting messages in a way that is more compatible with the receiver’s style.
