Share what you have learned from this course and how it has helped you both personally and
professionally in the area of communication. (150 WORDS MINIMUM)
What I have learned from this course has to be the importance of being aware of how you are seen. So many times in my personal and business life I pay so much attention to what others are saying and doing that I often assume I am being perceived as I intended. As I look back on certain circumstances I could have resolved issues much more effectively if I viewed how I was coming off to others. With this course I have began to check myself and review not just what I am saying but how I am saying it. I have been guilty of saying one thing but my face saying something opposite. I also feel that now I understand the importance of being prepared and how to take presentation to the next level through the use of visual aids and elevator pitches. Overall this experience has taken my communication skills to a much more advanced level and made me more comfortable to communicate in a range of settings.
