Hello, I have been struggling with entire topic of communication skills.
It’s not that I am bad at communication but I always feel I can do better and improve in that area. What I am missing is good practice/ tactics/ training around it. Do you some recommendation and suggestion here? I am willing to invest time on it but have no clue how to create plan of actions.

Looking forward to all the suggestions.

Do you mean something like making a presentation in person? Being well prepared beforehand is most important, anticipate potential questions, practice on your own or with someone who will give good feedback. You’ll get better the more experience you have.

That will come with time. Pause a second before answering. Practice keeping answers concise unless more explanation is needed. Remember that you won’t always know the answer to something at your fingertips and don’t be afraid to say so.


Communication can also involve managing up, tailoring your content to the correct audience, structuring what you say, communicating status updates, needs, and about changing timelines. Can you specify a bit more?

No it’s not about giving presentations. Usually, I prepare for presentations and I have good control over it.
It’s about communicating to upper management / team members and when sudden/ unforeseen questions get thrown at me. I sometimes ramble and struggle to make my point.
Then, I go through this self introspection phase- replying situation - ohh I could have said stuff.

I was promoted a couple months ago - it was an exciting milestone I was dreaming about for years. I worked SO hard to get this. Unfortunately this promotion feels like just a title. I feel like the leadership team don't take me seriously & they never care to include me in anything I'm supposed to be a part of for decision-making. Am I being disrespected in the workplace or should I just stop taking this personally?

How do you guys manage your billable hours? I usually work 6 hrs a day and breaks account for 2 hrs a day. I can’t really work for 8 hours straight but the 10 extra hours per week shows as wasted time and I’m getting more billable work to account for that. Its probably going to be work I’ll have to do in the evenings or weekend
