1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
In all aspects of life, effective communication is critical to success. Particularly beneficial for
those in positions of leadership and management, almost all aspects of work and functionality are
affected by communication. Training specialists Brad Humphrey and Jeff Stokes identify
communication skills as being amongst the most important skills for modern supervisors.
Andrew Posner, a career counsellor, advises that employees looking for career advancement
require such “transferable skills” as the ability to “analyze, write, persuade, and manage”.
Effective leaders are able to use a wide variety of media and strategies to communicate. They are
not only skilled at using verbal communication skills, but they are also adept at reading
nonverbal cues. Great leaders collaborate to foster harmony and amicability at work and help
teams achieve organizational objectives, in addition to writing regular and constructive
messages, gathering and conveying information, and making informed decisions for better
productivity. Additionally, they collect useful information through informal networks such as the
company grapevine; they can communicate effectively and persuasively in core groups and
formal presentations; and they write with conviction. Relying on the latest systems and
technology to improve their day-to-day operations, modern day managers employ modern
collaborative software like Skype and Google docs, Team Viewer to communicate more
efficiently in real time with their colleagues all over the world. In today’s world, apart from using
e-mail as a competent communication tool, Managers are also using social media networks to
launch, promote, and collaborate with potential clients and customers. Online collaborative postIt notes are a great way to share ideas within a team.
In contrast to the traditional methods like newsletters, flyers, and brochures, modern day
managers are enhancing their professional reach exponentially by writing professional e-mails,
relevant WhatsApp messages, effective business blogs, informative podcasts, and so on to
connect with a wide variety of stakeholders. However, depending on the purpose and scope of
your writing, having your authentic voice and personal style to communicate with different
individuals and groups is even more essential. Clear and honest communication can strengthen
the relationships at the workplace. Leaders need to keep themselves abreast with latest
motivational theories and leadership models to help create a stable system and philosophy for
their own business enterprise viable in their indigenous surroundings. It’s imperative on the part
of managers to acknowledge the contribution of employees every now and then by generously
offering words of appreciation such as “thank you”, “great job”, “commendable effort”,
“laudable effort” etc. These kind expressions recognize individual effort, increase loyalty and
inspire people to work even harder. In a survey by Mc Kinsey Quarterly in 2009 it has been
stated that praises from immediate superiors can empower and motivate employees.
Delayed feedback, stilted and rude content, delayed action; fewer personal pronouns can mark a
manager’s expression discourteous, impolite and offensive. However, putting a focus on
interpersonal relations, conversational tone, immediate feedback, prompt action and usage of
more personal pronoun, simpler yet colloquial expressions can bring the manager closer to his
subordinates and other members of the organization. “You” is more preferable than “I” or “We”
in most instances. Use of more positive words can draw more encouraging response from the
listeners.
