Communicative skills: Communication, as we all know, refers to the exchange of ideas and thoughts, with the intention of conveying.

The importance of communication skills cannot be underestimated. The lack of effective communication skills has a negative impact on the personal as well as professional life of a person. Good communication skills are a prerequisite for professionals, in all walks of life. For example Ineffective communication, rather than incompetence, precludes the doctor from conveying to the patient that the former has the best interests of the patient in mind. Communication does not refer only to articulating words. Using sign language and the sense of touch to express and feel are also important modes of communication.
