Many people struggle to communicate well in their personal and professional relationships. Communication skills are learnable tools that can help us listen and be understood. You may have noticed that the quality of your relationships is directly impacted by your ability to communicate effectively. Poor communication can negatively affect stress, anxiety, and your capacity to attract and maintain intimate relationships, achieve professional success, and access opportunities that can improve your quality of life.
The meaning of your communication is the response you get. Gregory Bateson
You can overcome communication difficulties by learning to apply effective interpersonal skills. Moreover, by learning how to communicate competently with others, you will simultaneously learn to use self-talk in more productive ways. Therefore, enhancing interpersonal skills will both improve how you relate to other people and positively impact your self-esteem.

Regardless of whether you feel challenged to listen well or express yourself fully, you can learn to feel connected and respond effectively when relating to other people.
