    My boss wants me to improve my communication skills but I am afraid of failing here

    I am working in a software company. Now my boss has told me that I need to improve my communication skills if I really want to progress and have a good future. But I have tried this many times before also but have always failed. I am afraid of failing this time also. What to do in such a situation?

    Communication skills has become one of the most important part for getting success in todays professional world. Communication skills include many things like speaking skills , writing skills, nonverbal communication skills etc. So first of all you must know in which particular field you need an improvement or do you need to improve in all aspects of communication skills. Before trying to improve in any aspect you must first know your problems like in writing your way of presentation, your word choice etc. It would be better if you can find a qualified person to help you improve in those areas. Because he can understand where you are actually lacking. Be careful in finding such a person because there are actually very few of them who understand communication skills and the ways to help people. Try to find out people who are much experienced in this field.

    Also while you start working on those skills take one thing at a time and work on it, it is not a subject that you read and is over or you just practice in those classroom sessions only. You will have to apply the things you have learned in your real world scenario. Than only you would be able to see improvement in yourself.

    The main drawback in you is you fear from learning you are not not totally dedicated to learn from mistakes you commit.. When you are working in software company it is important that you interact with clients for the project.. You should know what client wants from the company.. You can learn communication skills in about 40 days of time take time at night of 2 hours every day join night classes take time during weekends to improve your communication skills through practical interaction sessions..
    Practical interaction skills sessions:
    1 .these are the sessions where you will have 15 minutes of group discussions where you need to speak in relevant manner and your language accent is tested by trainers in an training institute when you cannot find faults in communication skills trainers will find where you lack and how you interact with others will be under scrutiny
    2.after that you will find your scores in different areas you need to check out where you lack in which area based on that you will be given training in good manner.. Don't feel shy learning has no age bar we all are learners throughout our life ... All the best

    hello,
    your boss is your well wisher and what he said is right and you should follow your boss words.you should be happy for getting such a good boss and you should ask him for any small thing that you want to clear.
    communication and soft skills are not a problem,if you want to get more about them then its better you practice them from online or by talking with your colleagues and at your home in english,it would enhance your softskills.
    getting to them is easy and we know that practise makes a man perfect so always practise as much as you can.

    hello friend,
    I would suggest you to pay attention on this proverb "try try until you succeed"
    If your boss thinks and says you to improve your communication skills then i think that he sees some spark in you. This spark is un-lightened . He knows that if you improve your communication skills then you will go beyond limits (success will follow you). So don't get nervous. As you stated that you are working in some software company, this means you have some caliber that you have been successfully working their. Just try to have confidence and remember nothing is impossible in today's world. Word it self says i m possible. So you should manage your daily routine and join some good coaching classes where you could improve your communication skills.
    If you don't want to join some institute then i would suggest you to start learning through internet. When you will built up your confidence then you can opt for joining some institute.
    Hopefully your communication skills will improve.

    Try and try and one day your will for sure be succeed!!!!
    first of all be confident and dont scare of facing English as this is just a mere challenge in life and you are a lot eligible of facing and properly crossing it down.
    There are many way to improve your speaking :
    The first is by taking some coaching class of those who promise to make you tactful in speaking English in some minimum particular time!

    Next if you dont want to spend outside then have faith in you as we are human...Slow lerner but its better late than never and make your routine to practice a set of atleast 10 vocabulary words to practice a day.
    Write an essay followed by articles on the recent going issues around you by inputing all your knowledge and as more points as you can .
    Next the most important , daily imagine a situation where you can speak and try speak upon that as an orator in front of the mirror. You can even debate with yourself while doing this exercise!
    Do look into the micro and speak this will not only increase your confidence while speaking even let your observe your facial expressions while you speak and this equally play an important role.
    Make sure you do it daily and whenever you are required to do some presentation in the office then prepare whatever you have to speak just 2,3 before and practice that and this will boost a quality speaking and confidence in you.Just remember nothing is impossible!!

    Thank you

    Hi, You need not worry so much. Improving communication skills is not a rocket science. You just need put in some extra effort to have a good command your communication skills. First of all, start conversing in English every time. Even start thinking in English. Secondly, cultivate the habit of reading newspaper everyday. In fact, read an article from the editorial section of any English newspaper (preferably The Hindu) loudly and be conscious to pronounce correctly. Ask one of your friends gifted with a good tongue, to check your pronunciation when you are reading loudly or when conversing with him in English. In addition, watch English news (preferably on the Headlines Today or BBC) every day and try to understand their conversation. Once you feel that you are able to understand news readers then go for English movies. This will definitely help you to improve your communication skills within six months. Believe in yourself and be a strong willed person and go ahead with all these practice. Nothing is impossible in this world because impossible stands for I M Possible... Thanks.

    Conversation skills has become just about the most important part getting results inside modern expert world. Conversation skills involve quite a few such things as communicating skills , ability as a copywriter, nonverbal interaction skills etc. Therefore initially you must know through which particular area you may need a noticeable difference as well as do you want to boost in all of the aspects of interaction skills. Before attempting to enhance in a facet you should very first learn your own problems including in some to your website associated with speech, your own concept preference etc. It may be superior if you can locate a experienced individual to help you boost inside those people areas. As they could understand what your location is really lacking. Be cautious in discovering this sort of individual because you can use very few of them that understand interaction skills in addition to the methods to assist people. Try to discover those people who are a great deal seasoned in this particular field.

    Likewise since you activate with those people skills consider something each time in addition to develop it, it is not a theme you understand and is particularly in excess of as well as you recently process inside those people class room consultations only. You will have to submit an application what you find with your down to earth scenario. As compared to only you would be able to observe enhancement inside yourself.
    Chance to find the you to pay attention on this proverb "consider try before you triumph"
    If the boss feels in addition to says that you improve your interaction skills and then i do believe that he recognizes a few of curiosity inside you. That of curiosity will be un-lightened.He knows when you improve your interaction skills then you'll definitely go over restricts (success will observe you). Therefore aren't getting nervous. Just like you explained that you will be working in a few program organization, this means you have any quality and reliability of which you happen to be effectively working their. Only consider to obtain self confidence can be earning ! not a single thing out of the question in the present world. Phrase it self says i actually l possible. Therefore you will need to control your health in addition to be a part of some great mentoring sessions where you can improve your interaction skills.
    as you're building program organization plus your boss told you a lot time period you have to boost the interaction but you have not quite a few times. Expensive,your boss is nice that gifted you the opportunity normally a few boss straight provide the with from the office. Expensive, you will need to grow your own interaction proficiency should you be failed and then consider time and time again because not a single thing impossible.
    In case toddler be a part of a few institution and then an excellent opportunity that you start finding out by means of Internet. If you may designed encourage self confidence then you can definitely opt for getting started with a few institute.
    Hopefully your own interaction skills may improve.

    and chaos. You should enhance your communication skills otherwise you will not be able to compete with other's
    at work. Many people have communication problem in our society and it can be cured with professional help. First
    of all you should be confident of your ability and skills. There are many professional institutes in the market which

    Hi friend,
    It is very well known fact that communication plays a very vital role in the development and growth of the organisation .Also it is totally fair on the part of the boss because no company would want a futile employee in their organisation.So its very important on the part of an employee to include good communication skills to contrast with an elegant personality within himself.And ,So, from my point of view you should not become afraid of the situation rather you should deal with situation bravely .You should have faith in yourself and be confident enough to deal the situation boldly.You should try to speak about this matter to your colleagues who are good at communication skills and get tips from them.This would really help to come out of this complex situation.Also you must watch other employees how they are communicating with the global organisations and try to grasp their technique .
