Communication is the first tool of success in every field of your career and life. You may understand its importance by the fact that whenever you want to get a considerable position in a company, the first thing they do is to take your interview which is based on your effective communication, and without passing the interview you cannot have any position in your career. So what can be effective communication? It means that a person listens to others with full attention than response according to what he had listened and when he speaks from his side he should be very much clear. So here are some of the effective communication skills to develop your career.
Not listening to your speaker especially at a workplace will not only be unethical but also will create your image of being an irresponsible person. To get an effective communicator you must listen to the other person with full attention and ask questions or give positive comments to send a non-verbal message to the listener that you are taking interest in what he is saying and very much understanding it.
Listening to the other person carefully and actively shows your responsibility, respect, and interest, and of course, such a good impression of your personality at a workplace will help you to develop your communication whether you are a boss or employee.
Without a proper and mostly positive response or feedback, you can never have effective communication because it is a two-way process and if your side is just nodding head and saying no words then it will be awkward and will act as a barrier between you and effective communication. So you must give feedbacks during a communication whether it is a formal meeting or informal general communication. Your feedback will throw a positive impression of your personality.
A lack of communication can completely ruin your career no matter that it is in the workplace or your other areas of life. If an interviewer spots low confidence among you then he will not even think of hiring you because a person with a lack of confidence cannot perform effectively in the workplace. Even if you are the boss of your company and owns your own business, still having a good level of confidence will create your positive reputation among your employees, because if you will have low confidence then how will you promote others to work with confidence and also your employees will not even listen to you.
Managing a Conflict
When many people work together at a workplace there are very high chances of frequent conflicts among bosses and employees and colleges, but if you will have the ability to manage a conflict then it will not only be beneficial for you but for others too. A person who creates a fuss about conflicts is not liked by anyone and no company would like to have an employee like that. You must have the courage to accept your mistakes and also accept others mistakes with an open heart.
