Business communication skills London
For companies, and business meetings, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure your organisation has effective communication. Many problems that occur in an organisation or at meetings are often the result of people failing to communicate, or communicate effectively. Communication is essentially the exchange and flow of information and ideas from one person to another - a process which involves a sender transmitting an idea to a receiver. This communication process can only be effective if the receiver understands the exact information or idea that the sender intended to transmit.
Three of the skills that ensure communicate is effective are to ensure:
- you must make your message understood
- you must receive/understand the intended message sent to you
- you should exert some control over the flow of the communication
Communication Skills – explore the opportunities
All organisations, regardless of their shape or size, including small companies and home-based businesses – need effective communication skills for success. The first step to achieving effective communication is to evaluate how well you communicate, so that you can identify the areas in your organisation that should be focussed on for improvement.
When choosing candidates for management positions, a recent survey of large-scale recruiters, shows that good communication skills were cited as the single most important decisive factor. Research also shows thatcommunication skills, including written and oral presentations, as well as an ability to work with others, are the main factor contributing to career progression and job success in companies of any size and industry.
Communication is successful when the right skills have been developed, which include inspiring spoken, written and electronic communications to individuals and groups.
Despite many of us recognising the increasing importance of having good communication skills, many individuals today struggle to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively, either verbally or in written format. This inability not only stands in the way of career progression, but is often very limiting and makes it difficult forpeople to compete effectively in the workplace.
To build a sucessful business, or progressive career a key skill to have is effective communication. To effectively communicate you must consider the circumstances surrounding your communications, such as situational and cultural context.
