COMMUNICATION SKILLS 2 Reflection on Interpersonal Communication Skills Communication on an interpersonal level occurs so often throughout every day that people often overlook the strengths and weaknesses of everyone involved. This lack of observation is especially true within ourselves. In fact, when we do stop and take a look at the patterns and styles of communication in our social interactions, most of us are more likely to critique how others communicate while overlooking our own assets and limitations. This course offered an opportunity to reflect and improve upon our personal abilities in a way that could be integrated immediately into our daily life Communication Strengths I have always considered myself a strong communicator, but until this course was unable to isolate my specific skills. Throughout this course, I have been able to identify myself as an empathetic, people-oriented listener (Communication in the Real World, 2013) with a skill for recognizing even the most subtle non-verbal cues. Communication in the Real World: An Introduction to Communication Studies (2013) defines empathy as “the ability to identify with and understand the wants, needs, and viewpoints of those around you.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
