Effective Communication: A Valuable Beginning

I have always wanted to initiate writing a blog for a while now and I could not find a relevant topic to start with until last night’s dinner with a group of friends inspired this valuable beginning.

According to Merriam-Webster, communication is a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior”.

Hence, effective communication is how well you send & receive those verbal, written or recorded messages and what you make or make not out of it. Good communication is not only essential in our personal lives but also it is invaluable in our professional life as it does offer tangible benefits like:

  • quicker problem solving,
  • increased productivity,
  • steadier work flow,
  • strong personal & business relationships &
  • improved response from everyone around you.

I have always come across communication in the form of sending only or receiving only and this is where unwanted problems arise.

Whether with friends, family or colleagues, ordering food, at the bank or in the office, always allow for a dynamic, two-way process of effective communication. It is common to voice our requests or thoughts, yet it is sheer courtesy to pause for an effective respond.
