Have you ever been unsure of how to respond to an extended family member's comment at a holiday dinner? Or maybe you've struggled with how to defuse a co-worker's combative attitude? It often feels like we are living in a divided world; even though "connecting" with one another is easier than ever, technology has also created barriers to effective communication. Break down and understand these roadblocks by rediscovering what communication is, how it works, and how to practically promote stronger connections in your personal and professional lives. With the knowledge you'll gain in this course, you can lead by example to become an agent of change in your community and help people learn how to communicate better.
