AS refer to my first blog post I needed urge to improve my communication. I am kind of introvert in large group, socially awkward person. And extrovert in private one to one communication.At times I find it very difficult to hold my openness and frank discussion in one on one discussion. I joined Toastmaster International, few month back to improve my social and public speaking skills. This is being wonderful journey They have 2 wonderful CC – Competent communication manual and competent leadership manual as reference to improve skills. Its really handy to have some good references.Additionally we do have mentors who are willing to help and guide along the way. CC manual has 10 projects and each chapter describes outcome of project.
