Effective Communication


In our global world where large organisations and international networks are the cornerstone of virtually all facets across our society, the importance of effective communication is paramount, particularly for the ‘leader’ of such an organisation. Undeniably one cannot guide, direct or influence people nor work concurrently with others without ‘exchanging information… [and] developing a sense of mutual understanding and sympathy (Oxford Dictionary)’.  Without the vital ability to communicate effectively, our world today would be in disarray, thus illustrating the importance of successfully mastering this skill.
