Effective Business Communication

Paul Anovick

“What we have here is a failure to communicate.”

How often have you heard this expression or made the comment yourself? The most difficult challenge in today’s workplace is effective communication. This process addresses the following areas, verbal face to face, telephone, voice mail, written, text and of course EMAIL.

Many people think communication is transferring a precise piece of information from one mind to another. Effective Communication is a two-way process, sending and receiving. We need to consider the impact of listening skills on effective communication. The skills that are clarified require trust, mutual respect and building a climate of openness.

We deal with the “non-verbal” signals that we receive and send everyday. The cultural and generational differences are addressed in the effort to improve communication. Eye contact, enthusiasm and “silent messages” can enhance communication.
