This is Why you Should have your own Personal Communication Style

When it comes to most problems, you can often trace the root cause to a breakdown in communication. Something said the wrong way, or not at all, can lead to assumptions that create unnecessary challenges. So wouldn’t it be great if more of us focused on improving our personal communication style? “The people who are good communicators also have intellectual and emotional intelligence,” says Jack Modzelewski, author of Talk is Chief: Leadership, Communication, and Credibility in a High-Stakes World. “They’re very in tune with others, whether they’re talking to one person, a small group, or an audience of many.” Learning good communication skills isn’t emphasized enough in many business schools, and people who are promoted to high levels, such as CEO, are often surprised how much they’re needed, says Modzelewski. “You can rely on other people to help, but at the end of the day, you have to own your words and your communication style,” he says. “Anything you say becomes a matter of record. Words do not go away.”
