    • 5.1: Introduction to Effective Communication
    • 5.2: Ready, Set, Communicate
      Have you ever had one of these communications be misinterpreted? You meant one thing, but your friend thought you meant something else? A text message. A voice mail. A passing comment. A Facebook post. An unreturned phone call. Sometimes, the miscommunication can result in the confusion of a meeting time or a place to get together. Or worse, it can be entirely misunderstood and may have a negative impact on your relationship.
    • 5.3: Your Best Behavior
      You probably learned about table manners, thank-you notes, and other forms of etiquette when you were younger. The way you conduct yourself says a lot about who you are in life and, by extension, in business. Although many companies have a casual dress code, don’t be quick to assume that protocol and established practices aren’t important. It would be easy to misinterpret lack of formality as lack of professionalism. Manners matter in selling, now more than ever.
