Communication Techniques for EAs are tried and tested techniques which you can apply in the most practical sense to help you communicate for success all day, in both your work and personal lives.
We'll cover everything from how you can become more strategic in communicating what you want; to looking, sounding, and listening smarter, and as a result creating results in areas that matter.
