Speaking, Listening, Writing, and Reading Effectively
Communication skills are soft skills that so many employers want their new hires to have. Communication skills are more than just being able to hold a conversation. It is one of the most important skills that you need to develop to become successful. Communication includes speaking, listening, writing and reading effectively. It is becoming much more important now as we are moving to working in a global, virtual world. Mind Tools has a simple test with an evaluation that will get you started in understanding your level of skill.
You will be shown 15 statements. For each statement, rate on a scale of five (5 being very often, 1 being not at all) how it best describes you. Please answer questions as you actually are (rather than how you think you should be), and don't worry if some questions seem to score in the "wrong direction".
(1 = Not at All, 2 = Rarely, 3 = Sometimes, 4 = Often, 5 = Very Often)
