The Benefits of Communication Skills Posted By Joshua Uebergang aka "Tower of Power"  On October 3, 2008 @ 7:05 pm In Emotional Intelligence Interpersonal Relationships  |  What if I told you there was a secret to you being happy, attractive, popular, successful, understanding, in control,  loving, and satisfied? What if you could get these benefits – plus more – by learning a single skill? It sounds almost  too good to be true. The skill that gives you these benefits is effective communication. Communication has too many benefits to list  because the skill enhances many areas of one’s life. Any interaction with people or lack of it can improve with  communication. Rudyard Kipling said, “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” Kipling’s quote fails to fully  describe communication because it is far more than words – it also incorporates  nonverbal channels of   communication   [1] . Imagine the powerful benefits of communication now. Here are a list of communication benefits that tell you the what, why, and how this amazing skill will change your life: Communication increases your happiness . You have probably heard money cannot buy happiness. You become  happy by taking the right actions. Think about it. Happiness is at the core of your actions because happiness is not  conditional. You don’t become happy by getting a certain object or person in your life. When you take action on  learning communication, you empower yourself to be happy. While developing your communication skills makes you happy, at the same time your happiness increases as you  minimize situations like destructive conflict that make you stressed and unhappy.  Effective communication skills   [2]  makes you happier by helping you reduce the frequency and severity of verbal fights, manage anger, express yourself  to “get things off your back”, and change other situations to increase positive feelings.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
