Professional Communication

As people we are always communicating in both active and passive ways – how conscious are you of what (and how) you’re communicating with the people around you? You’re likely aware that you communicate differently in different settings, but do you know how to improve your communication skills in these different settings?

On this page we have brought together resources to help Graduate Students Professional improve their Professional Communication skills. Professional Communication refers to communication utilized in the workplace to build positive and productive working relationships.

  • Learn techniques to help you share complex topics and ideas with a wide range of audiences
  • Make your visual presentation more compelling
  • Effectively practice cross-cultural communication
  • Manage difficult conversations & conflicts in work environments

Yale offers many different resources to help you improve your own professional communication skills.
