Communication Skills

What is Communication?

Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another. Although this is a simple definition, when we think about how we may communicate the subject becomes a lot more complex. There are various categories of communication and more than one may occur at any time.

Importance of communication skills

Communication is the process by which we share and understand information. This can be achieved verbally, visually, non-verbally, and through writing. Communication is considered effective when the message is received and understood in the way it was intended. In today's hectic world, we rely heavily on the sharing of information, resulting in greater emphasis being placed on having good communication skills. Good verbal and written communication skills are essential in order to deliver and receive information quickly and accurately. In contrast, poor communication skills can have a negative impact on all aspects of a person’s life. A poorly delivered message may result in misunderstanding, frustration and in some cases disaster. How well information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are.
