Communication is a process of transferring information from one person to another. Communications is the cement that holds workplaces together and ensures that organizations are productive, profitable, and successful. People tend to think of communications as only the words they say or write, but it is so much more than that. Communications includes the environment it is used in, how words are said, non-verbal and cultural aspects, and how the communicator’s personality affects their style. To be an effective professional, workers should understand the various elements that make up communication.
