From the time we are born, we are totally reliant on others for our needs. While we all strive to become independent as we grow, we also have an innate need to socialize with others and be part of society. Communication skills are necessary in order to be able to interact with others.

Communication skills are probably the most important asset that anyone can have. Excellent

communication skills can be just as valuable as an education. People with good communication skills know the power of words as well as body language and are able to get their ideas across to others with power.Communication is more than just talking about your own ideas. You can never truly be an effective communicator if you do not listen to others. You have to be able to hear the needs of others in order to be able to help them. Communication is not just about spouting off your own ideas; it is about listening to other people, discovering their needs and trying to help them.
