A person with good communication skills can persuade the employer or boss during the presentation of any plan to be made in the company. He can impress and persuade the interviewer in any interviews that he will be participating. He can easily deliver his report or presentation during the class discussion in the classroom. Most of all a good communicator can informs other people by sharing his knowledge.
Communication can also affect the relationship between friends, family, lovers and other people as well. A person with good communication skills can really create a harmonious relationship among other groups and other people.
