Effective communication is made up of several fundamental building blocks. It is vital for the success of both individuals and companies, so its imperative teams ensure that they get these fundamentals right. By building communication skills, team members can get more out of their interactions with others and enjoy better relationships with colleagues, stakeholders, clients, and suppliers. 
Communication isn’t just in the words we speak; listening makes up a vital component of effective communication.
