    Re: How to make up for the lack of communication skills?

    Hello...

    Here are the most important points I could give you to improve your skills...

    - Apart from the normal communication, a professional communication requires to follow some of them such as eye contact, gestures with your hands, expressions in face, and most importantly one should be aware of what your body is saying.. i.e., Body language can say so much more than a mouthful of words... An open stance with arms relaxed at your sides tells anyone around you that you are approachable and open to hearing what they have to say..

    - Appropriate posture and an approachable stance can make even difficult conversations flow more smoothly..

    - Enunciate your words... i.e.,Speak clearly and donít mumble.. If people are always asking you to repeat yourself, try to do a better job of articulating yourself in a better manner..

    - Pronounce your words correctly and Use the right words..

    - Use appropriate volume.. Speak more softly when you are alone and close... Speak louder when you are speaking to larger groups or across larger spaces..

    Hope this will help you...

    Thank you..

    Re: How to make up for the lack of communication skills?

    See improving communication skills is not a big problem now a days as there are so many places where you can go and have a training to improve

    them. But first of all you must be clear about what you are lacking as communication skills is not just speaking it includes much more thing besides

    it. Also many people are confused with English speaking and communications skills which are both different things. You can find loads of material on

    internet related to communications skills but using them to improve your skills is not a cup of tea for every one. As it requires time and lots of

    practice to work on each and every part of your skills. Also you won't be sure that is there any improvement in your skills.

    So it would be a better option that you find a good trainer that have considerable experience in this field and thus can work on you to improve your

    skills. Also if you think that you have a problem with your speech than you can go to a speech therapist that can find the problems in your speech

    and thus can give you necessary tips to improve your speech. There are many exercises that will help you in improving your speech. For

    improving your writing skills which is also an important part of communication skill first of all you will need is to improve your language that is

    English which is the official language. For improving language you will need to improve your vocabulary that you can do by reading and learning

    new words you can start by learning alternatives of word that are commonly used by you in your routine work and thus you can gradually improve.If

    you lack in basic grammar than you can take help of a English tutor. As these things are not easy and will take time to be mastered so you can take

    one task at a time and work on it. But first of all you must be determined that you have to improve and thus will put your efforts seriously.

    Remember that these things cannot be learnt in a time of 1 or 2 weeks and even months, so you have to be constant in your efforts and will need to

    practice regularly. Gradually you will find improvement in yourself.

    Hello, Lack of communication may crop up from any sort of language barrier or due to lack of confidence.If you have been facing any sort of language problem for which you are unable to open up yourself then you should start working on it immediately.If you feel that there is lack of confidence,you have to rebuild it.You have to trust your abilities and identify your potentials.Then only you will be able to communicate gradually.

    Dear guest,

    communication skill is one of the feature of soft skills..
    And soft skills can only be improved by practice. So do the studies say.

    Now the question is how to practice and where to practice. You need to focus on this point. Communication is something that needs action, we call this as body language. The action plus the language you speak is called communication. The best way to improve it is practice it. Practice it with every person you meet. Need not be your office person, but any random person. Including your siblings,relatives anybody. Always try to speak better. Am sure you will learn it real quick like riding a bike.

    Thank you...

    To make up for the lack of communication skills, remember following tips :-

    1] We always keep a positive communication.

    For positive communication, just improve three essential elements of communication.

    a] Attitude

    b] Desire

    c] Skill

    a] Attitude :- Your quality to provide lodging or sufficient space for each other.

    b] Desire :- well being, happiness and positive change in relationship

    c] Skill :- your ability to communicate directly.

    2] Pay attention to non verbal things like eye contact, gestures, posture, body movements and tone of voice.

    3] Look for your incompatible behaviors. You should pay attention towards your such type of incompatible.

    4] Your tone of voice should be clear so that so that another can take interest in yours.

    Hello..

    Friend, this is a good thing that you are a hard worker because the thing I'm going to suggest you is only a hard worker can do. So first thing is that as you are saying that you are having problem with communication skills , so my friend this is the first main quality in which you have to be perfect because if you are not able to share your ideas then you are not going to gain something good from your company. Secondly , the thing which you can do is try to strong your vocabulary and try to spend some time with you alone , speak harder and continues and practice as much as you can , take some help from books also on speaking skills and practice harder . As we that practice makes perfect, so follow this and have a good luck.

    Thanks.

    Re: How to make up for the lack of communication skills?

    Hi,

    This is a very common problem many of us are facing....Understand that communication skill is one of the most important part for presenting yourself...
    It is even more powerful than doing a lot of hard work...sometime it seems that a lot of employees get good break for their communication skills, where as a hard worker are not getting the same...

    For this you have to be more interactive with the employees..it is not that if yu don't know english, you will not be treated a good candidate...remember a good relation builds with the good behaviour and good communication with the employees...
    Don't shy, go and mix with employees, share and get shared....

    Read books, articles with different topics...discuss funny things.. you will be attracted when you can love employees and share such ideas which they feel good...
    Good luck

    Re: How to make up for the lack of communication skills?

    Hi aspirant

    These days good communication skills are a must if a person wants to shine bright in the professional world. So if you don't have good communication skills you should try to develop them rather than finding another option for the same. You should try to improve your shortcomings and that is the best way in which you will be able to gather more appreciation and will get noticed in a better way.

    You should first start talking to everyone in english. You should have a fluent and clear speech which forms the basis of good communication skills. Try reading good english books and novels in your free time and I am sure that you will be able to improve your vocabulary. I am sure with time you will definitely be able to bring a drastic change in your communication skills if you give it a try. Then everyone will definitely appreciate your efforts.

    I hope that you understand my point. Good luck for your future

    Hello Aspirant,

    Nothing is impossible for a person like you who is hard worker & creative in nature.

    As you know the communication is a two way traffic which means one has to speak & others have to listen to it & vice versa.So when you need to speak,you must be aware to whom you are speaking,what about you want to speak,where & when you have to speak.Also you should be thorough in English language for which you are required to go through some English grammar book,build up its vocabulary,phrases & proverbs.

    Alos you may go through Repidex English speaking book which is very useful in developing spoken English.Also you should concentrate on practice.Try to practice in speaking English,because practice makes the man perfect.

    Good Luck.

    Dear,
    Your problem is a very common problem, which is having a group of solutions for it.
    First, leave fear, impatience.
    Grow in confidence. I know over nightly it may not happen but everyday practice will solve the purpose.
    Do some spiritual practice like meditation. It relieves you from depression, stress, lack of confidence.
    Be hopeful.
    Change your look and feel by changing your dressing sense, hair style,etc.
    Feel that you are good so your are beautiful.
    God has gifted you with so many powers for which you are a special person, and no other person is like you.
    Communication skill increases by listening to persons having good communication skill, reading news papers, talking to people more and more in the required language of communication.
    So I hope that you can only solve your problem the best.
    Bye take care.

    So works need hard work and some need full practice.

    The hard work you are doing and the work of practice is required for being good in communication skills.

    So you have to practise more and more to improve your communication skill.

    Also note down the common mistake you often conduct while communicating with others.

    For next time try to avoid the common mistakes.

    In this way your confidence will built and you will overcome through your bad communication skill.

    Dear Friend,

    If you want to succeed in your career, you need to have,

    1. Good understanding of your field,
    2. Communication skills

    And, as you move up the ladder in any organization, the need for good communication skills will only rise further. So, you can't really make up for it.

    Once you become Manager or team leader, you need to manage your team and you will also have to represent your project to the higher management. So, communication skills will be very important.

    I would suggest you to take it as a challenge and try to improve your communication skills.

    If you do following things, it may be helpful for you:

    1. Read any national level English newspaper daily
    2. Note down words and go through them frequently
    3. Choose any of your friend to talk to him and work on speaking skills
    4. Learn better presentation skills
    5. Dress appropriately and professionally
    6. If you are not able to gain anything much, don't hesitate to join any professional institute to improve your communication skills.

    I am sure, if you work on it, in few months you will be able to improve your communication skill and get your much awaited appreciation.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    Re: How to make up for the lack of communication skills?

    To make up the lack of communication skill you need to work on vocabulary and also needs to practice speaking english in front of mirror every day in a perticular period of time because the more you practice more you will get sharp in that work.
    One of my teacher told me that if you like to get success in any of the work then you need to do that work in a manner that you should never face any kind of problem in life then the success will be definitely yours.
    Try to do things in a sharp manner.
    Well getting success is not a one day procedure it is a long term process if you make the schedule and do that work with proper guidance and dedication then you will improve in a rapid pace.
    Never loose your confidence because once the confidence level go down then the things start to go wrong so gain the confidence to make the work strong.
    You can also join any of the english speaking course to make it strong because they will increase your confidence level and also they will make the atmosphere full of english, as students are not allowed to speak in any other language other than english so that will be helpful for you.
