“The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.”- Peter Drucker. When at work, one needs to perform a lot of communication acts, namely: speaking, listening, writing, information relaying and other critical communication procedures. Communication is a primary tool any individual should possess. Speaking skill which should be clearly stated. Listening in a way that it is clear that individuals understand what the information is. Reading skill performed properly so that less time will be consumed in following and relaying orders. One should be able to write legibly so that the readers can decode the message more effectively.

                Communication skill is a basic competency that any employee should perform. Most of the time, an individual has to use these skills to perform well on his/her job. Being able to communicate efficiently indicates a healthy job status. Also, communication should not be limited to success talks but also on failure or problem talks. Through communication, there is nothing that cannot be resolved in an organization. As we humans kept surviving because of our top of the notch communicative skills that can even be dated back since then. “It’s important to make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.”- Barrack Obama.
