Being able to communicate effectively is the most important of all life skills.

Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another, whether this be vocally (using voice), written (speeches, presentation notes, LinkedIn or emails), visually (using pictures, maps, charts or graphs) or non-verbally (using body language, gestures and the tone and pitch of voice). 

How well this information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are.

Professionally, if you are applying for jobs or looking for a promotion with your current employer, you will almost certainly need to demonstrate good communication skills. For example, the ability to: speak appropriately with a wide variety of people whilst maintaining good eye contact, demonstrate a varied vocabulary and tailor your language to your audience, listen effectively, present your ideas appropriately, write clearly and concisely and work well in a group all require good communication skills. Many of these are essential skills that employers seek.
