What “Communication” means? Litterly, the meaning is to convey message by one person to the other. And Effective Communication is conveying the message clearly from one to the other. So clearly in any interaction; there as a rule is one speaker, & the other listener. The speaker is a ‘transmitter’ and the listener is the ‘receiver’. For effective communication, organizing the words, the sentences, the topic; before these are transmitted; is the most vital step. It decides clarity of message and the effect it will leave upon the listener. Between the transmitter (speaker) and the receiver (listener) lie innumerable type of obstacles, which have to be taken care of before uttering words. What to speak, when to speak, in whose presence or absence to speak & how much to speak – all matter in communication.
Written Communication, too, is a powerful tool to impress or depress a reader. Carefully chosen words with positive strokes leave clear cut impact upon the reader. Communication style & matter definitely differ for person to person. A boss writing memo to his subordinate, a son writing a letter to his mother, a lover conveying his feelings to his beloved, a teacher writing notes on the daily diary of student – all these written words can develop or damage vital interpersonal relations. Curriculum Vitae submitted by the candidates convey clear cut opinion about the aspirants even without meeting them personally. Art of written communication once mastered; make the events happen as desired.
Other than written and verbal communication-metaverbal communication signals one’s response or reaction to a particular situation. For example take ‘smile’ – it may mean a sweet wish or sarcasm to your saying. Your sitting or standing posture reveal the level of situation you are in. Eyes are the most effective means of conveying one’s feeling – anger, love, affection, rejection, happiness – all your eyes speak without verbalizing even a single word. Grenade eyes, epoxy eyes, angling eyes, observing eyes mean a lot in communication.
So spoken, written or even unsaid words rule the world. Effective Communication can be a source of happiness, success, joy or things are otherwise. Mastering the art of effective Communication is a must.
