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)

(20pts)
Toi's answers

I learned early on day one, that my hand gestures were a communication NO NO! I think a culmination of things have happened to me while taking this course. I have learned how a few of my oral communication skill could be distracting. I learned better non verbal communication skill such as body language and facial expression. I also took the time to reflect on my management skills and how my communication skilled actually pushed me into the category of being a good manager. I've always been a talker but more than that I love to listen and get a clear understanding of situations and listening is always better than talking. It just makes for a better outcome when you have gotten all the facts. Critical thinking is something I will be implementing more of as I feel the discipline, and self directed motivation/correction would be very beneficial in my life.
