The most profitable talent

Updated on April 20, 2008

The ability to communicate successfully is the most profitable talent.

Communication is the most rudimetary thing we do each day. We have been doing it since the time we were born. Its importance can't be stressed more. Whether you want to order a pizza or answer your boss at your office you have to communicate well. Failing to do so will result in the loss of your pleasure of life.

One can increase his/her earnings by communicating successfully.

This is not true only for a salesman but also for all other people doing different jobs. In a particular instance, if all things are going well and your communication with your employer and/or colleagues is not good then you are in for trouble. If you are good at communications you can get pay raises faster then your colleagues.

Good communication is not only beneficial for one's coffers but also proves helpful in relationships.

We all have seen families torn apart by disputes, of trivial nature. Many a times parents find it difficult to communicate with their teenage children and vice versa. The underlying reason for all these pains and conflicts is poor communication. If you don't believe it, try to be nice with someone with whom you don't have nice relations, for one day and you will start to see results. It can be anyone, your neighbor, colleague, shopkeeper.

If you communicate successfully, you can get others to do things for you.

I have an anecdote to prove this point.

Once upon a time Henry Kissenger asked an official to write a report for him. The official complied and wrote him the report. When Kissinger received the report he asked the writer "Is this the best you can do?". On this, writer polished and condensed the report and sent it to Kissenger who again asked the same question. The writer worked hard and condensed it as much as possible and sent it to Kissenger but got the same question asked again. The writer plainly said "No". To which Kissenger replied: "Fine, then I guess I'll read it this time."
