6. Communication Skill
Being able to communicate effectively is perhaps the most important of all life skills. It is what
enables us to pass information to other people, and to understand what is said to us. You only
have to watch a baby listening intently to its mother and trying to repeat the sounds that she
makes to understand how fundamental the urge to communicate is.
Imagine you are on one side of a wall and the person you want to communicate with is on the
other side of the wall. But there’s more than the wall in the way. The wall is surrounded by a
moat that is filled with crocodiles and edged by quicksand. These barriers could be things like
different cultures, different expectations, different experiences, different perspectives, or
different communication styles, to name just a few.

7. Communication Skill in the context of
Job/Business
The expression “excellent communication skills” is used so frequently on job descriptions
that, ironically, it’s hard to know what it really means. We’re all natural communicators
so what is it exactly that employers are looking for? Surely we’re all brilliant at
communicating.
However, just because employers don’t really specify what they’re looking for doesn’t
mean they aren’t looking for some very particular skills and talents.

our face, and different gestures we use.

within a business. Everything done in the workplace results from communication.
To engage and develop a successful career, there are various reasons why successful communication
skills are important –
To secure an interview
Job interviews usually take place face to face and in person, although modern communications
technologies such as the Internet have enabled conversations to happen in which parties are
separated geographically, such as with video conferencing software, and telephone interviews can
happen without visual contact.
