Professional Communications

Welcome to the UML Libraries' LibGuide to Professional Communications!

Today, more than ever in the business world, communication and the skills associated with it make the difference in getting hired, promoted, and properly compensated. Everyone has good ideas, but being able to communicate them, garner support for them, and move them forward is the ability that catapults individuals in organizations. Communicating is a learned skill and as a learned skill can be improved and enhanced. The new channels and mediums of communication allow for less time to think and have an expectation of immediacy. This immediacy makes communication challenging unless the basic skills are established making them second nature.
