Be it an individual or an organisation, communication skills has always been a subject of discussion and debate. Are people born with communication skills or are they developed over time is a question that is often asked. The training world strictly believes that communication skills can be taught and developed, however, languages skills are likely to take more time and practice.
What is communication skills?
Corporate environments are characterised by large numbers of people who have to constantly interact and exchanges ideas to be able to derive the required output. These people hail from and are located in various geographies of the world, therefore they are culturally and linguistically very different. The way people think, express and interpret depends on various factors ranging from socio-economic background, age, nature of work and personality type to name a few.
Some people speak fast and some slowly, some use phrases and idioms to decorate their speech, many don’t, some people use sense of humour to bring home a point while some others don’t even get it… Despite the language of communication being the same the differences in styles leads to confusion in interpretation and comprehension.
