The success of your communication determines your success in every other aspect of your life. Although people begin talking around age one, we generally have very little training on effective communication skills. Primarily we learn from those we are observe the most and that may or may not be successful.
The changes that we must negotiate are happening at such a fast rate, it can be difficult to keep up and provide a ripe environment for conflict. Research suggests that more technological changes will occur in this century than all the previous ones combined. This combination of fast paced changes and conflict will only slow down productivity and foster care requirements.
No need to get depressed though. Learning to improve your communication skills will help you immediately and you will be motivated to continue improvement. A notable bonus for your improved communication will be that others will improve too, your stress will go down, and your productivity will go up.
