I ensure I use the correct grammar, spelling and punctuation when producing written communication and always follow the same formatting. I proof read all documents to ensure that I have made no mistakes. When communicating verbally, I analyse the situation before talking to people so that I know how they need to be dealt with and spoken to. When using electronic communication I ensure that I save all forms of this onto the system and print out where necessary. I take feedback and constructive criticism from others as I believe that by doing this you can improve your own way of working and it can have a positive impact on the way in which you communicate. ...read more.
