Sharpen your communication skills for work – 2

Be error free. Proofread and run a spell check on anything you type–be it an email, Tweet, or letter.


2. Keep criticism constructive.


Be generous with praise when a job is well-done and add in tips and for improvement for the not-so-perfect work. Criticism is a feedback. It is not supposed to be emotional or insulting.

To have a comfortable working relationship, initiate chats on a few general, personal things outside their work life. But take care to not cross the line.


5. Never stop improving.


Effective communication is a skill you must practice, keep learning and improving.
