Communication Analysis

Language and non-verbals are two channels we use to communicate. They can dramatically affect our listening.

What listening, language, and nonverbal concepts were in action in the example? Did you follow the principles? Why or why not? Finally, evaluation your communication. What went well and what did not go so well? Why? What steps could you take to improve your listening and message construction skills?
