Communication is at the heart of your relationships, both inside and outside of work. Your ability to express your ideas, opinions, feelings, beliefs and vision will influence whether people understand you, like you or trust you.
Everytime you have a conversation or attend a meeting your communication skills are called upon. Both your choice of words, tone, facial expression, emphasis, pace, body language and even appearance add to your communication message.
If on August 28 1963 Martin Luther-King had not said ‘I have a dream…’ but instead said ‘Guys, I have a strategic plan..’ would this have had the same impact? Would it have been so moving and memorable? Probably not.
The ability to communciate clearly and succintly, and with good articulation, vocabulary and fluency affects your reputation. Influencing skills, negotiation skills and persuasiveness are underpinned by these foundations of communciation and will affect your performance at work and your credibility. But communication is not just about expressing yourself.
It’s also about your ability to listen, interpret, ask questions and encourage openness and honesty from those you work with.
