Also, at certain points, I will be required to resolve issues or conflicts among the employees. Good communication skills will help me handle negativity properly without further worsening of the situation. Also, if there is an existence of communication gap, issues can develop, so to handle them and avoid problems, effective communication is essential. With this, issues among employees will be reduced and they will give good performance. For effective business communication, meetings being held regularly can also be helpful in achieving objectives or missions of the company. With these meetings, employees will be informed and motivated and sense of recognition will develop among them, which will foster their performance and their attitude towards work.
