The Importance of Effective Communication
In today's world of instant communications, we substitute emoticons, slang, abbreviations, short texts and soundbites instead of developing the skills to express what we really mean to say. Today's digital devices capture too much of our attention and cause us to shortchange personal conversations while worrying about our virtual relationships. Highly effective people – in business, social, and personal relationships – inherently understand the importance of communication skills, which is why some people enjoy success while others continually encounter difficulties expressing themselves and understanding others without generating conflict, misunderstandings, and mistrust.
