Communication is a skill most of us practice every day.

Often without realising we're doing it.

Rarely intentionally.

I take my communication skills for granted. I'm not a brilliant communicator, not the best by any means, but probably, yes, I'm a bit above average. It wasn't until a colleague remarked on my presentation skills in particular that I remembered I'd actually been taught a thing or two about being on a stage. First as a dancer, then as a performer, and finally as a theatre director.

I gave a talk a couple of years ago called Tools for Talking.

I'm preparing a new talk, which, in some ways, is a sequel to this one. As part of that prep, I thought it might be useful to write some short summaries of each of the tools outlined here, with links to resources on them.
