Can lifelong learning really sharpen a person’s communication skills?
Yes any learning can sharpen communication skills. Reading is a great way to learn how to approach communication with sophistication, or urbanization. You can also learn through life, by behavioral and speech study, whether it be academic or just observation. Through constant awareness and study one can become better spoken, in all aspects of life.
Listening is a skill than many people are deficient in. In the book Listening by Andrew Wolvin there are statistics which show how deficient we are at listening. Reading and writing are taught in schools, but listening is not directly taught. To sharpen a person's communication skills a person needs to go on a life long pursuit. This makes the person a better listening, and therefor communicator.
Lifelong learning also teaches a person about various perspectives. This allows people to understand other people's perceptions better. This, in turn, makes the person a better communicator.
It absolutely can. I have upskilled myself on this for a while. And the feedback I get at work is really great. We have got so called 360 degree feedback where our peers, bosses etc score us on different things one of them being communication skills. And I am very pleased that my skills have dramatically improved. I have put together some of my own learnings into a a few short articles on communication skills: http://www.timesmartme.com/timetips/mas … eractions/
