LinkedIn Learning April Challenge: Let’s Talk Communication
21 April 2021
LinkedIn Learning have put together the challenge “Let’s Talk Communication” which you can complete over two weeks. The challenge includes daily video tips to help you improve your communication skills.
Overview of challenge
Communication is at the heart of everything we do – in the workplace, in social situations, and in relationships. Effective communication helps us understand and be understood, strengthens relationships, and improves productivity. While some may think strong communication is a natural talent, it is a life skill that everyone can learn.
This month, we’re excited to launch LinkedIn Learning’s April Challenge, which will give you the tools you need to be a clear and confident communicator, an active listener, and a great teammate.
Challenge yourself to participate every day – each video takes less than five minutes to view. Happy learning!
