WHY IS THIS SKILL IMPORTANT?
“Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.”
– Rollo May (1909 –1994), existential psychologist and author
The ability to communicate information accurately, clearly and as intended is one of the most essential and most useful tools for success you can possess. Effective communication requires being able to express your ideas and views clearly, confidently and concisely.
If you are a good communicator, it means that you can adapt yourself to new and different situations, read the behaviour of other people, that you are ready to compromise for a mutually satisfactory agreement, and thus resolve potential conflicts with ease. And finally, since communication is a two-way street, being a good listener is vital.
