Introduction

If you're still in doubt about the importance of communication skills, just think about your life. It doesn't matter what field you work in - knowledge or non-knowledge based, if you can't communicate how good your company is, how well your product works or why you are an amazing candidate for a job then it's likely that not many people will be interested. So after reading this blog post I hope that by 2022 you too are convinced of the importance of communication skills.

This blog post is going to explore why communication skills are so important and we'll also give some tips on improving communication as a whole.

Why do you need communication skills?

Communication skills are so important because the world we live in is a highly connected one. No longer do people buy from people they know or from people who live down the road. Instead it's anyone, anywhere, any time thanks to the internet. So you need to connect with your audience in order for them to choose to invest their money, time or whatever else into your products and services.

They are considered valuable in the workplace because they allow you to do your job successfully. Your communication skills form part of your personal brand, so if you can communicate professionally then people will trust you and this in turn will help you to build relationships with others. That's exactly why communication skills are included on most professional résumés as one of the essential job skills.

Improve your communications

So how can we improve our communications?

Well for a start we need to be prepared for how people will respond to us when we communicate certain messages. So be flexible and adaptable when the time comes.

It helps in polishing your career to think about communication in terms of a triangle. Let's say that on the bottom of the triangle you have your basic skills, then as you move up the triangle you get to more advanced skills. If we're talking about communicating in English then your base level would be your basic grammar and vocabulary. Your next level up would be your fluency and spelling, then comes your spoken presentation. Then at the top of the pyramid would be nonverbal communications such as body language and tone of voice.

Excellent post! I completely agree with you. Communication and portraying yourself in a professional and put-together manner are key to revolutionizing your experiences and elevating to the next level.

I am happy to have stumbled across this post. I would say I am good with interviews but it is always worth getting back out and practicing, to improve. Which I definitely need to do a bit more.

Communication is something that we have to practice daily to ensure that we will always have what it takes when we need it the most (Like interviews or meeting new people).

Not gonna lie I lost some of my skills last 2 years because I spend most of my time in my room, but now things are getting a little better as I started to go back to university and see people.
