From asking a waiter for an unusual substitution to urging a service manager to get your car finished sooner to swaying your significant other toward a particular film or show, many of the decisions you make are decided by talking. And no matter why you engage in face-to-face talk, there's no way to insulate yourself from the dangers of miscommunication. These 24 mind-opening lectures are your chance to learn more about how you communicate verbally, the common problems you can encounter in doing so, and how you can improve your own effectiveness.

I have learnt much from these insightful lectures about communication. It is my belief that the Great Courses series is one of the best resources available to me for private education. I now feel that I am better prepared to navigate the world around me as an effective communicator. Fully recommended.
