Having strong communication skills aids in all aspects of life – from professional life to personal life and everything that falls in between. From a business standpoint, all transactions result from communication. Good communication skills are essential to allow others and yourself to understand information more accurately and quickly.
In contrast, poor communication skills lead to frequent misunderstanding and frustration.
How to Improve Your Communication Skills
Here are some pointers to look out for when looking to improve your ability to effectively communicate with others:
To become a good communicator, it is important to be a good listener. It is important to practice active listening – pay close attention to what others are saying and clarify ambiguities by rephrasing their questions for greater understanding.
Convey your message in as few words as possible. Do not use filler words and get straight to the point. Rambling will cause the listener to tune out or be unsure of what you are talking about. Avoid speaking excessively and do not use words that may confuse the audience.
3. Body language
It is important to practice good body language, use eye contact, utilize hand gestures, and watch the tone of the voice when communicating with others. A relaxed body stance with a friendly tone will aid in making you look approachable by others.
Eye contact is important in communication – look the person in the eye to indicate that you are focused on the conversation. But make sure to not stare at the person as it can make him or her uncomfortable.
Be confident in what you say and in your communication interactions with others. Being confident can be as easy as maintaining eye contact, maintaining a relaxed body stance, and talking with concision. Try not to make statements sound like questions and avoid trying to sound aggressive or demeaning.
In situations where you disagree with what someone else has to say, whether it be with an employer, a co-worker, or a friend, it is important to sympathize with their point of view rather than simply try to get your message across. Respect the opinion of others and never resort to demeaning those who do not agree with you.
Respecting what others have to say and acknowledging them is an important aspect of communication. Being respectful can be as simple as paying attention to what they have to say, using the person’s name, and not being distracted. By respecting others, the other person will feel appreciated, which will lead to a more honest and productive conversation.
7. Using the correct medium
There are several different forms of communication to use – it is important to choose the right one. For example, communicating in person about serious matters (layoffs, salary changes, etc.) is more appropriate than sending an email regarding the matter.
Good Communication Skills for a Great Career
Succeeding in your career requires good communication skills. You need to know what you want and how you are going to attain it. Being an excellent communicator can help propel your career.
Good communication skills can aid in helping you land an interview and pass the selection process. Being able to articulate well provides a significant advantage! To do your job effectively, you have to discuss problems, request information, interact with others, and have good human relations skill – these are all part of having good communication skills. They help in being understood well and in helping understand the needs of those around you.
By 2030, Experts says that India is on the threshold of major reforms and is poised to become the third-largest economy of the world. This is according to a report by the UK think tank Centre for Economics Business and Research (CEBR). Indians have an increasingly tech-savvy, educated population, consisting of skilled and intelligent labour which means we are at the cusp of making a great career for ourself as well as contribute to the glorious development of the country. This is especially true for students aiming to go for engineering courses. If we have the right passion, the future is bright. There are opportunities and scope in almost every field although the scope might keep changing as new trends, technologies and requirements emerge with each year and in the current situation. The key question that you’ve got to ask yourself before choosing an engineering branch is whether you are passionate in that particular field or not. If you are choosing a course simply based on its job possibilities, then you are going to be stuck in a course that you hate and you have to struggle to complete it. Then you will be trapped in a job that you have no skill or interest in. So it is very important to go for a branch that is of your interest. So this table shows closing and opening ranks for one of the top engineering branches – Computer Science & Engineering that you can opt for based on your interests and skills.

The communication which does not follow any pre-defined channel for the transmission of information is known as informal communication. This type of communication moves freely in all directions, and thus, it is very quick and rapid. In any organization, this type of communication is very natural as people interact with each other about their professional life, personal life, and other matter.
Example: Sharing of feelings, casual discussion, gossips, etc.
The informal communication is of four types:
• Single Strand Chain: The communication in which one person tell something to another, who again says something to some other person and the process goes on.
• Cluster Chain: The communication in which one person tells something to some of its most trusted people, and then they tells them to their trustworthy friends and the communication continues.
• Probability Chain: The communication happens when a person randomly chooses some persons to pass on the information which is of little interest but not important.
• Gossip Chain: The communication starts when a person tells something to a group of people, and then they pass on the information to some more people and in this way the information is passed on to everyone.
Key Differences Between Formal and Informal Communication
The following points are substantial, so far as the difference between formal and informal communication is concerned.
Formal communication is also known by the name of official communication. Informal Communication is also known by the name of grapevine.
In formal communication, the information must follow a chain of command. Conversely, the informal communication can move freely in any direction.
In formal communication, full secrecy is maintained, but in the case of informal communication maintenance of secrecy is a very tough task.
Formal communication is written, whereas Informal communication is oral.
Formal communication is time-consuming as opposed to Informal communication, which is rapid and quick.
Formal communication is more reliable than Informal communication.
Formal communication is designed by the organization. Informal communication starts itself due to the urge of ‘human to talk’.
In formal communication, the documentary evidence is always available. On the other hand, in the case of informal communication, the supporting documents are not available.
