    I know people who have trouble expressing themselves in public and then some who are fine giving speeches, but have trouble one on one. Everyone is different and there are many areas of life that require good communication skills. They can involve many different kinds of communication skills to master.

    This is a great self-test to gauge your communication skill. It might surprise you, too. You can be strong in lots of areas, but lacking in a few. Lots of good stuff here at AOE to take care of any weak areas you may have!
