Communication plays a big part in our lives. This is why it is important to bridge the gap between meaning and understanding. Communication is a two-way process. It’s a process of sending and receiving information with an end result in mind.
Effective communication should bridge the gap between the meaning of the word and how it was being understood. When communicating your ideas you must be able to make them known and understood before they can be or will be accepted. To be able to achieve the desired outcome there must be a clear and mutual understanding. Like what needs to occur or what needs to be done.
Remember, two people can listen to the same person’s message and receive two entirely different understandings. There might be two different interpretations of the content or the intent of the message.
When there is an effective, it leaves all parties involved satisfied and feeling accomplished. Additionally, in situations where conflict does arise, effective communication is a key factor to ensure that the situation is resolved in a respectful manner. Your communication skill may make or break you.
