Situations and skills

Start by thinking about the range of communication situations you face now and anticipate facing in the future. Think broadly — from public speaking, to meetings, presentations, conference calls, and difficult discussions.

Which ones are easy and which ones are difficult for you?

If you get anxious, is it caused by the size of the group, your familiarity with the people or the material, or is it something else?

Which situations are most important to you, or critical to your job?

After thinking through the situations, evaluate what you do well and what you find difficult about the skills listed below — some are about your preparation and some are about your experience "in the moment."
