We can talk so much as humans. We tell somebody else how we feel, our ideas and many more things. Even when we are at work we can communicate so much. We love communication because we are social creatures. How does communication benefit us? Can it open doors for us? How important is communication for our careers?
Marketing yourself is one of the most important things in life. You need to be able to tell the business who you are working for, who you are and what your strong points are as a human being. Being able to talk is really important in this process.
In order for companies to notice you, you need to be able to make companies hear your voice. Your communication will determine a lot. When you become better at talking, companies will see you as a social person and that is what they need. Companies don’t like people who don’t have any input.
Companies want somebody that likes talking with their colleagues and is open for conversations. Your communication skills really need to be good. Especially within bigger companies. Within bigger companies, they will be active in foreign countries, so you need to be able to talk with customers and for example, tell them something about the company you are working at and if you have no skills to tell this, it will get tough for you.
It is not only important for companies but also for other situations. Imagine you have a brilliant idea that will really change the world, how are you going to explain things if you are not a good communicator. Before you know it somebody will steal your idea and present it better than you did and you will end up regretting the fact that you are not a great talker.
Being a better communicator and marketing goes hand in hand. You will be able to promote yourself better and companies will really notice that. I am not saying you need to talk to everybody 24/7, but if you want something you need to be able to explain the company that you work for or somebody else, what you want. Don’t be too shy when it comes to marketing yourself.
Imagine that you are at a job application and you can’t even explain who you are and what your soft and hard skills are. You can have all the great skills. In the end, you need to be able to tell the world how great you are and what you can do for the company or even for the world.
Learn how to be a better communicator. Try to have a conversation with your colleagues about various subjects and see the difference. You will even become happier. You can talk about anything.
Your social life will get better. Not only with your colleagues, but also with your wife, friends, and family. People will love to talk to you because they will know that you are always open to a conversation and they will know that you are fun to talk with.
You will interact more with people and that is a good thing. We live in a digital world where we don’t have that much social communication with others. Only via Facebook, WhatsApp or other social media platforms and this really harms our social life in a painful way.
You can see the children nowadays having problems talking because everything is becoming digital. This is one of the most important skills you need in order to have a good social life.
Interact more with people and try to be open to people and see the difference. The next time you see the person, he/she will be very comfortable with you, rather than feeling awkward.
The moment you enter the business world is the moment that this skill will be put in to practice. Sometimes you will be overwhelmed by the amount of communication around you. For example, you need to talk with customers, with your colleagues and find new customers for the company.
You don’t want to become the person that is known as anti-social. Also, imagine that you are working and you don’t say a word to anyone. After some time you will get bored yourself and the reason is that you don’t interact with people.
In order to become a successful person, you need to be able to talk with your colleagues and show them who you are and what you stand for. Don’t be shy to talk with the people you do business with. You need to bring value to the company you work at. You do this by talking about your innovative ideas you have and tell them your opinion about things.
Bringing value to the company you work at will determine how much you get paid. You can have a collection of diploma’s and you can be very proud of it, but in real life, you need to be able to bring value to a company. How can you make the company bigger or get them to the next level with a new idea? You need to be able to talk about these things and companies love that.
Meet new people
Meeting new people is something very important. You need to have new connections and new connections can help you get a job or you will find someone who will become very valuable.
You cannot meet new people if you don’t talk to people. That is a pity. You will want to meet new people in order to grow. Especially if you are at the start of your career, you need to be able to make connections with older people who have a lot more work experience.
Before you know it you will be talking with a person that has been working in the industry you want to work when you are done with your study. You can ask them things and they will always remember you as a person that is pro-active. That is how powerful this skill can be.
Also for people that have been working for years and want to make a career switch, this skill is really important. What do you do when you are looking for a new job, that is right you will be trying to connect with the recruiters or the company manager and talk with them about the switch you want to make. If you don’t want to interact with people you will never find someone that can help you make a career switch.
Being able to talk to people smoothly will help you market yourself. You will be able to tell the world what you are made of what you like and who you are. Companies love people who can present themselves. You will be building your brand and bring it to the next level.
Your social life will become better. Not only your private social life but also with your friends, colleagues etcetera. People will know that they can always approach you with a conversation and that you are an open-minded person.
Business is all about communication. The moment you start, you will be overwhelmed by colleagues that want to meet you. They will try to talk to you. Imagine that you work as a salesman and you can’t talk, you will bring no value to the company. Business is all about bringing value to the company and by talking about new ideas or being able to tell your own opinion, you will bring new value to the company and that is what you get paid for. Your income will even increase. How great is that?
One of the greatest things is that you will be able to meet new people. By communicating with a large variety of people, you will understand different people better. It is so important as a student, businessman or as somebody who wants to make a career switch to meet new people and you can accomplish this by being a better talker, by being able to communicate with different people smoothly.
We are social creatures and we don’t want to forget the importance of talking to ourselves and for the outside world.
