Communication

“The real meaning of communication is getting the receiver and the sender tuned together for a particular message. Communication takes place when one person transfers some understandable data to another person. It also includes the exchange of thoughts, opinions, sentiments, facts, and information between two or more persons”. The working environment cannot be a productive place if all workers are not able to effectively communicate with each other. Everyone that is employed to a particular job has to work in conjunction with other individuals to fulfill broadly stated objectives. It is virtually impossible for any place of business (or place of employment) to operate efficiently without an effective means of communication among staff members.

The important concept to be underscored is that, not only do we communicate orally; but one must pay significant attention to the frequency of our communication. The frequency of our oral communication forms the most important characteristic of this communication method. Therefore oral communication and frequency are tied at the hips.
