Published By FAREED SIDDIQUI on 2013-02-22 71 Views

“Communication- the human connection - is the key to personal and career success.”  The word communication comes from the Latin, “Communis’ which means to share. Communication is a process of conveying or sharing a message. Conveying the right message at the right time in a way as  intended is necessary in the workplace so that the predetermined objectives may be  attained successfully.

Developing effective communication is of great value and relevance in the workplace. What functions behind leading a business to a higher level and maintaining its function state effectively and efficiently is effective communication. It not only causes the organization to execute all the activities smoothly, but it also reduces time and efforts to a greater extent. It is by means of effective communication that the diversified activities can be smoothly planned and carried out.

Developing effective communication skills is not confined to an employee or a department, but it is equally important for everyone in the organization from lower level to the top level. A leader or a manager is bound to have excellent communication skills that the predetermined results may be attained. As Gilbert Amelio says, "Developing excellent communication skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership. The leader must be able to share knowledge and ideas to transmit a sense of urgency and enthusiasm to others. If a leader can't get a message across clearly and motivate others to act on it, then having a message doesn't even matter." Thus, effective communication leads to desired success.

Effective communication eliminates discrepancies or misunderstandings. At the same time, it paves the ways for effective and efficient performance of a business. In order that a balanced movement of diverse activities as well as a coordinated structure may be formed in the workplace, it is necessary to establish effective communication. The objective of effective communication in the workplace is to create the right perception, to make others react and behave in a way as desired getting the things done successfully.
