Effective communication is about more than just speaking clearly. Jessica Rose explains why learning to put your thoughts forward compellingly, listening, and creating an environment where communication thrives are also vital and explores strategies for effective communication across companies comprised of employees with varied technical skill levels, with a special focus on clear communication between technical and nontechnical parties.
