    I think comunication skills are very important for everything in our life, but first because of socialisation and entrepreneurship.
    My job is coaching and I think that my comunication skills are very useful in every situation.

    Also, thank you for the great videos!

    Dear Florian, there are several articles on this topic, of course, but they contain small pieces of information given in the video lecture. So the best thing to read is Michael Argyle’s book titled Nonverbal communication. I don’t have it in the pdf version, but it’s widely available in libraries…

    Thanks for the really interesting and useful contents in those videos!
    I did a lot of notes while I watched the videos. I think these communication skills are very useful in general life – not only in entrepreneurship. I´m sure that I can bring it into my job as a coach too!

    Will there be a link for the articles to read and the quiz to solve?

        Hi Jutta! Thanks for your answer. I think I missed something – or maybe it´s because I have not been to the face-to-face meeting. Could you may give me some information about this? Maybe a link and do I need a password?

        There are all together 4 homework mentioned in the articles. I guess it will be a little bit confusing to post everything as a comment…

        Thanks a lot!
        Bye, Flo
