Whoever we are communications are essential to our lives, without communications we are lost and miss out on not only life itself but the things which make us happy and keep our mind, body and soul together as well as friends and family too. There’s very little today that doesn’t need communications and the level of communicating is so far advanced that machines and functions are talking to one another, even some fridges today can tell you what’s out of date and when you need to re-order, and it’s becoming more and more interactive as the days go by. We are all different some people are gregarious others are somewhat reserved but whatever the status is we need to communicate effectively, and the word effective is the operative word for if we cannot make ourselves understood we are still lost. Saying what we mean isn’t the same as meaning what we say, often there’s no time for translations of thought or contradictions, you say one thing others pick up on it and that’s that.
Those that get on in life have the ability to speak in tones that others feel warmed to, if one speaks in monosyllabic tones then others become somewhat uneasy that intelligence behind such a voice is limited and therefor keep away, which is often the case. Cultural differences can make in themselves a difference in acceptability of voice and whilst it’s getting less and less in today’s multi-cultural society the base line is intelligibility and confidence in what is being said is either accurate or will be carried out. Overseas call centres are one of the biggest gripes in most western societies, and the idiots that teach them, otherwise why would they say what they say like parrots.
Communications in any large company or even small one are an essential element for many people rely on others input and knowledge for them to proceed and it’s not always the case that it’s all a common spread on a database, it’s not, much of what has to be said is originally generated by one human being therefore that knowledge needs to be shared by others to be effective. How many times have you left a message on the voicemail of a person in a company and they haven’t phoned back, and this action is never checked.
Global interfaces are forever active today, there are chains of commands that are relayed from strategic points to strategic points, there are statistics and demographic facts and figures and numerically crunched data that pinpoints who does what when where how and what age they are and anything else they can fast link to profile assess who’s who. The smooth running of our own lives requires that we know what we need to live and what we would like to enjoy life over and above the essentials, and what we need to do to keep our friends and family otherwise we will end up bereft of camaraderie and what humanity means to us and then we become mentally unstable, which is happening more and more.
Communicating is not just about saying what you want and calling it a day, we have a range of communicating facilities such as smiling, body language, how we dress, our positive attitude, our ability to be generous in some way, and so it goes on. The dull do nothing the happy do everything it’s the way it is and it’s the way you make it for yourself. It’s all choices and characters, what’s your choice going to be is it linked to your character? For More :-
