Description: Communication is something that we have all been doing since we came into this world, but are we any good at it? What training have we had to ensure we are communicating in the best possible way and what bad habits have we picked up over the years in the name of expediency or winning the argument? George Bernard Shaw once said that ‘The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.’ So how do we dispel that illusion and make sure that it has?
