Introduction and Objective :

In today’s fast-paced, globally connected world, effective communication is essential to successful business practices. As a manager whether you are convincing your colleagues, sharing your concerns, selling business to a client or motivating a team, effective communication makes the difference between success and failure. We need to understand that communication does not simply happen—it requires skills and strategies along with the conscious efforts. Those who fail to understand its seriousness, they may encounter difficulties. Conversely, managers, who can communicate their ideas with clarity, are more likely to gain recognition and advance in their careers. They make a difference in the world of practical affairs because of their excellence in communication. Thus, the need of the hour is to develop proactive communication skills which guarantee managerial success.
