  2. 2.

  3. 3. Do you agree?<br />Although everyone listens, speaks and writes every day, few people realize how important these communication skills are. <br />Engineers in particular tend to emphasize technical and mathematical skills more than communication skills, not realizing that they cannot be fully effective in their jobs if they are poor listeners, speakers and writers.<br />http://professionalpractice.asme.org/Communications/CommSkills/Introduction.cfm<br />4/2/2011<br />3<br />Engineering College, Bhavnagar<br />
  4. 4. Do you agree?<br />We all listen and react depending on what we value. We might be more concerned about relationships, or more about ideas or, more about results. <br />We can more effectively communicate if we understand and relate to people from what they value.<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FljoEitkIeM<br />4/2/2011<br />4<br />Engineering College, Bhavnagar<br />
