IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Communication is a form of interaction between humans to convey messages of different kinds. Messages can be structured to inform, convince and can even function as a medium for people to form bonds and judge other individuals. Thus, having effective communication is important to attain these goals and create good reputations.

Observers are able to judge the speaker’s characteristics and evaluate his capabilities through communication. For example in a job interview, questions are being asked to assess the interviewee if he or she is suitable to be a member of the company. In this case, effective communication comes in handy for him to convince the interviewer of his or her capabilities. Therefore having effective communication skills is an advantage to individuals.

Through communication, one can also educate others. For an example in an interactive seminar where the speaker is to deliver a talk and to answer queries from the audience, both the speaker and audience interacting are to have effective communication skills to optimize the time spent and gain as much information as possible.

In addition, effective communication skills may also prevent misunderstanding and clarify doubts. For example in a debate, two speakers may have two very different opposing views. Without effective communication, anyone may easily offend the other party and this may leads to confusion.

In conclusion, having effective communication skills benefit individuals in many forms.

  5. English as a universal language should be properly taught. Companies need to prioritize it other than having 1300 number for communication purposes.

  6. Effective communication skill is the basic yet very essential requirement in each segment of life and when it comes for the business owners it becomes much more important, and when it gets combined with such services as most of the business owners are using like 1300 numbers in Australia, then it can show much better results.
