Developing good communication skills goes hand in hand with actively developing good listening skills.
I have a self drive to improve some skills in my interpersonal relations. Such skills include but not limited to listening skills. Listening skills play a fundamental role towards establishing a mutual understanding in a conversation (Koprowska, 2005). By improving my listening skills, I will be able to respond to various situations intellectually; for example in responding to criticism and also accepting corrections. Developing good listening skills help me understand what is expected of me especially in the workplace and also to understand the hidden meanings of what others have to say. Other skills which are paramount in developing good interpersonal relationships which I plan to improve include coherence during speaking, being audible and maintaining good eye contact while addressing others.
In everyday life we meet people of different race, culture, religion and beliefs; it is therefore very important to develop good communication skills to allow us to associate freely and share diverse ideas with them. By developing these skills; I will be able to interact freely with my co-workers, my boss and other staff members in the work place .In conclusion, communication skills play a very vital role by immensely contributing towards the success of our daily endeavours. Communication is an essential skill that people have to learn. Good communication skills help in upholding one’s dignity; a precursor of confidence and success (Koprowska,
