Communication Is Central To Success
Having excellent communication skills is one of the most important soft skills that you need if you want to build a successful career and, some would say, a happy and successful life. Co-workers regard the great communicators as successful individuals. Being a great communicator will get you places and promotions, but this means you have to be highly versed in all the elements associated with communication. Many people do not communicate effectively; they take turns talking. They may act like they’re listening, but may really just be thinking of what they will say when it’s their turn to talk. Whether you are the sender or the receiver of communication, you have to be comfortable in dealing with all the different channels that exist. These include voice to voice, face to face, written and many more. If you have poor personal communication skills, you will struggle to have interpersonal effectiveness and you will find it very difficult to further your career and personal life.
