Communication is more than just talking, I mean communicating with someone should be more than just letting them talk, it is more of the question “what are they saying“?
communication /kəmjuːnɪˈkeɪʃ(ə)n /
[mass noun] the imparting or exchanging of information by speaking, writing, or using some other medium:
television is an effective means of communication
▪ [count noun] a letter or message containing information or news:
a telephone communication.
2 (communications) means of sending and receiving information, such as telephone lines or computers:
In the above definition , take note of the exchange of information, containing information, sending or receiving information. You’ll find that it is important that a message is being passed across and not just talking.
Take for instance having a conversation with someone , even though the topic of discussion matters you’ll agree with me that communication is very important here. It is important that when having a convo everybody is flowing, everybody is understanding each other.
There are skills to communicating, we need to know how to pass across information while talking to everyone, might be your friends, partner , family, boss and so on.
There’ll be a post on “skills to talking with sense” or should we say”effective communication”?😁.
