Communication skills are an integral part of today's work culture. Companies with people who have good communication skills are bound to develop better and improve. But companies with people having poor communication skills are bound to falter and be either taken over or fall by the wayside. This is the main reason why companies hire people with good communication skills.

People are not born with good communication skills. It is something which is learnt as a person grows. You would have seen even children on television with better communication skills than most of us. It is all inculcated in them at an early age. So if it something which can be learnt, then everyone can try to learn it.

This article talks about a few important methods of improving your communication skills.

1. Be assertive: In all your verbal communication, try to be assertive as you talk. People believe those who are confident. If you are confident in whatever you say, then the listener will be mesmerized and will listen to you with more attention.

2. Use Examples: Communication is when the listener understands what message you are trying to convey. Sometimes, what you are trying to say goes over the head of the person whom you are talking to. This will not happen when you use examples in your talk. When you use examples, the person or group to whom you are talking will be able to correlate things and understand you better.

3. Mix non verbal communication: As you communicate with a person, if you increase your non verbal communication like gestures, it will help the person who is listening to you to concentrate more. It also plays a small role in conveying the message you are trying to convey.

4. Talk slowly and loudly: When you are talking or giving a lecture, try to talk slow enough for the people who are listening to be able to grasp your words. At the same time, try to be loud enough for the people to hear the words clearly. This is a very basic and important aspect of improving your communication skill.

5. Do not be monotonous: The pitch of the sound should change as you talk. If your talk is monotonous, then the listeners may become bored and may feel sleepy. Try to modulate your voice as you talk.

If you are able to adapt these things in your lecture or even in regular communication with others, it will help you to communicate better.
