Most everyone considers strong communication skills an important part of professional performance. Being able to communicate well can increase customer relations, relationships within the company, as well as overall job performance. On the other hand, poor communication skills project an unprofessional image and a lack of confidence. Your employees are a reflection of your corporation as a whole; employees who lack strong communication skills can make your entire business appear less competitive and less professional.
Unfortunately, some of your strongest and most competent employees may have poor communication skills that mask their abilities. One solution is seeking the services of a corporate speech-language pathologist, or professional speech coach. By bringing in outside help to strengthen the communication skills of your employees, you can increase customer satisfaction, increase employee relations, and enhance the overall image of your company.
In August 2009, Corporate Speech Solutions conducted a study surveying the communication habits of professionals. Two out of three respondents stated that if they do not understand what someone else is saying, they will ask for one or two repetitions and then either guess, or take their business elsewhere. This means that a lack of communication skills can actually cost your corporation money and clients.
