Tips and tools to engage and be understood

Communication is one of your most important work tools. Good communication is fundamental when we are to collaborate, lead, develop or change something. When you communicate openly and actively, you contribute to good work processes and results.

Communication is about sharing information with each other, for example through words, actions, images and sounds. To succeed in communication, you need to know who you are communicating with and what they are interested in. You need to adapt your tools and listen to them. And you have to write and speak in such a way that people outside your own research field, will understand you.

On these pages you will find tips and tools to help you along the way.
