It strikes at the worst time possible. Your presentation is coming up, and your palms are getting sweaty. Public speaking is a notoriously stress-inducing exercise, and at some point, we all feel those pre-performance jitters. Earlier this month, we saw presentation anxiety at its worst when world-renowned director Michael Bay left the stage following a teleprompter malfunction at a recent press event. Other celebrities, including Barbara Streisand, Maya Angelou, and Grammy Award-winning singer Adele, have also suffered with bouts of stage fright.

In today's fast-paced work environment, it can be easy to dismiss the value of direct communication. Whether you're connecting via telephone, web conference, in the conference room or around the water cooler, you can improve workplace productivity by sprucing up your listening skills.
1. Create a Sharing Environment
Great listeners know the key to effective communication is being open and approachable. Foster better communication in your office by taking the time to listen to your co-workers without interrupting their train of thought. Not only are you improving workplace communication, you're also fostering a sense of transparency that builds trust and boosts company morale.
