Skills Employers Want – #1 Communication

Communication is a critical skill in the workplace. It is not surprising that it is number one on the list of skills that employers want. It is a complex skill that is just as important in our personal relationships as it is at work. While communication is simply an exchange of information, there are many things that can interfere with the sending and receptions of the message.  A message includes both the content and the context which includes voice and non-verbal or body language.

The CONTENT of the message includes the words that are chosen

CONTEXT (see TED Talks below from Julian Treasure and Amy Cuddy)

  • Voice: volume, tone, pitch, pace & clarity
  • Non-verbal: facial expressions, eye contact, gestures, posture

RECEPTION relies on good listening skills

This is one of a series of posts based on the results of a survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers on the top ten skills employers want. Each post provides links to websites for learning the skills.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
