Communication skills are an essential tool to equip when you work in any company or industry sometimes efficiency, morals and objectives may suffer is you lack the ability to communicate.

Having great communication skills makes recruiters eager to hire you more, it also means a great ability to negotiate and deal with different kinds of customers and clients, being a good listener are also one of the major points in being a good communicator as well.

Having good communication skills is not also important for you in your current work; it can also make you eligible for other competitor companies.

What are the most preferable communications skills employers ask for?

Here are the top 5 best communications skills you must equip in work:

  1. Emotional Intelligence.

The ability to manage, control and understand your emotions will help you communicate effectively, avoid stress, overcome challenges and emphasize with others. These are skills that are learned over time.

Emotional intelligence contains 4 basic methods:

  • Self-management.
  • Self-awareness.
  • Relationship management.
  • Social awareness.

Combining these skills together would make you a master in communications skills.

  • As a trick tip, you can check online job opportunities websites like LinkedIn and Joblang to check the most wanted communication skills they ask for in their candidate.
  • Confidence.

Confidence is crucial.  Talking in a firm friendly voice, high confidence and direct eye contact are some of the way you can convey confidence.  Too much confidence might turn into arrogance if it was not controlled professionally. Demonstrating confidence will absolutely give your clients a feeling of trust and faith in your abilities and how the information is being delivered.

  • Be a good listener.

Listening is what makes the communication effective, you have to practice on listening carefully to your clients and co-workers.

  • Clarity and Cohesion.

Being a good communicator does not mean saying only the right things; it means how you can easily deliver the information in a clear coherent way, your information should be delivered clearly and with no errors.  Before you start any conversation or even in sending an email, put in mind to deliver one specific idea for example and what is the result you want to obtain from the sent information. 

If you are delivering the information in a misleading way, then be sure that distractions and bad decisions will occur.

  • Good questions lead to good conversations.

If you want to start up good conversations which will improve the outcomes, the purpose of asking open – minded questions is to encourage both clients and co-workers to open up freely and speak about detailed subjects, which will eventually lead to a great brain storming session. This communication technique helps produce new ideas and useful solutions.

If you are not a good communicator, then you should start now by building up good strong communications skills, you can either take courses or join work closed groups who shares experiences and success stories. You should always stay up to date to work related courses; you may sometimes discover some hidden skills you never know you obtain!
