It is a fact that communication is present all the time in everything we do. Whether we are at work or at home, we speak to each other to convey certain ideas or thoughts. But we must remember that business success depends entirely on effective communication skills of each and every member of the business unit. Hence employers of the modern world are giving much importance to communication ability of the managers or the unit heads as well as all those who work under them.
Key elements of effective communication skills
We unknowingly communicate with each other through gestures, facial expressions, body language, variations in tones and the words we use. But often we do not realize how these elements effect work environment and also the progress of business. Hence, modern technological studies have made it very clear for all aspirants who wish to work in a business unit especially must be well versed in the effective ways of communication. The specific features that make communication most effective are namely the audience with whom you are; the purpose of communication; content; tone or voice modulation and the style of communication. It is however the responsibility of both the employers and the heads and also the employees of the business organization.
Responsibility of the leader
It is the responsibility of the leader to create an environment where there is a feeling of team spirit intentionally and even if there are conflicts effective communication helps to bridge the gaps and solve all kinds of issues. The methods used by the leader to encourage good rapport among the team that I have perceived in a successful business are:
Defining the aim
Being transparent and shedding light on the working process.
The mission of the business must be stated clearly so that the entire team shares the vision and the goal that is to be achieved.
Deal with problems thoughtfully.
Results of effective communication skills
When such elements are present in an organization, the effects that I noticed were that every employee regarded their participation in every kind of work and solved problems as their responsibility as being a part of the team. Effective communication helped them to speak out their problems, requirements and demands smoothly and that lead to harmony and success of the company. The feeling of being a part of a team can achieve unbelievable profits because everybody actively takes part in the regular proceedings of the organization. Hence it is important to maintain effective communication system within an organization and for this, the process of communication should begin early and maintained throughout life.
