Given the ever-increasing amounts of information people face today, it is necessary for individuals to find more effective methods to communicate and collaborate with each other.
Communication is the ability to express ourselves effectively when we write and speak and is recognised as being a vital business skill.
Knowledge, without the ability to communicate it, is nearly useless.
Sharing knowledge is an essential aspect of the knowledge worker's roles and responsibilities and when we communicate, we tell our audience a great deal about ourselves.
Therefore, it's extremely important that our communication skills do not let us down.
Common communication problems include: too much content that buries the message; lack of context, inaccurate messages, lack of structure; insufficient support and poor use of language.
Furthermore, the information is often out of date when it is finally delivered.
