The impact of conditioning, habits and beliefs in communicating in groups, elements of interpersonal communication, barriers and obstacles to effective communication in a business context and techniques to deal with them were explored in this workshop.
The diversity of the group in terms of skill, age or experience level was not a deterrent to the participation and membership in the group. Active involvement, energy, enthusiasm and openness in sharing made this session a memorable experience for all. ious communication contexts.
