Interpersonal Communication 2
Introduction
Interpersonal communication is a face to face communication between two or more people. It
is the process in which people exchange information and feelings through verbal and non-
verbal communication. The interpersonal communication is not all about the language used

speaking on the phone and expressing emotions through facial expressions.
I believe that communication is important for any kind of profession and is an essential part
of a career. For instance, giving a presentation at work and writing an email are both
examples of communication in professional relationships. The communication made possible
sharing of information in a formal way by using various technologies such as slideshows. The
exchanges of ideas are required in the professional world. The communication has an
important role in the completion of tasks. The communication skills at a workplace helped
me to collaborate efficiently and also helped in the accomplishment of tasks efficiently
