How to Communicate with Tact and Professionalism

Be a consistently professional communicator in English—even in difficult circumstances.

How well you communicate can make or break your professional image. It directly influences how others view your work and performance—as well as your prospects for career advancement and mobility. Unfortunately, being diplomatic, tactful and credible doesn’t always come naturally to people. Even when it does, such communication can easily be derailed by emotions and conflicts.
