Successful Business Communication: It Starts at the Beginning

Successful Business Communication: It Starts at the Beginning | Stuff |

Charles Martell's insight:

This article talks about how simple communication is and breaking it down in to a few sentences so people can understand it even if you are a primary student. At first a quote that really catches my attention is “Don't communicate to be understood, rather, communicate so as not to be misunderstood.”

Successful business communication
After reading Steven’s insight I have a better understanding of what communication is and how simple it can get when you break it down in to small parts. Something that I found very interesting was that people always tend to try making others understand them during a conversation but not share the idea and try work out something that everyone would like so there won’t be any miscommunication and arguments. When it comes to facial expressions I think it is a very important skills to manage when we are communicating because we are not always happy when we are having a conversation, there is always a time that we are down and depressed but we still need to control our facial expression so the communication is effective and there won’t be a misunderstanding of message, a sad face during a business talk won’t do any good. Also the tune of voice is very crucial too; the tune of voice can some even change the meaning of a sentence and this can definitely bring communication into a different level.

I think understanding each other is one of the most important things to do during a communication, as Steven’s insight mentioned a communication’s main goal is that both parties understand each other and make sure there is no misunderstanding, but a lot of people still thinks communication is a one way tunnel where one side give out information and make sure the other side totally understand it, how every that is not correct. I also think the 3 preparation questions is very important before starting a conversation, even when if its not inside a business there should be a preparation if you want the conversation to be effective. After reading the insight I also realise how communication can be a very easy thing if you look at it in a simple way, as long as your concept is right. Also I like the part about facial expression, I have a lot of experience when I have a conversation with others and just by looking at their face I want to end the conversation before it even started.

Often in the world of work, you will be called on to write a short, professional biography to post online or in print. It’s easy to fall into the trap of maximizing every accomplishment and qualification in an attempt to make yourself look as good as possible. But if that’s the route you take, you’re sure to fail, writes Jonathan Rick of communications firm Jonathan Rick Group.

When you refer to yourself with terms such as “powerhouse,” “expert” and “guru,” you don’t impress anyone; you just make yourself look like a braggart and a jerk.

To make yourself look appropriately modest and gracious, skip the adjectives and stick to the facts when you sit down to write your bio. If someone else has bragged about you by giving you an award or an honor, it’s fine to include that information—just credit the source.

Andrew Tibbetts's curator insight, September 19, 2013 6:20 PM

This is a short exerpt about how to talk about yourself the right way. You don't want to come off as arrogant or a jerk if you descrice yourself using ridiculous terms such as "powerhouse", which the article says. You simply want to state the facts about yourself and remain modest while doing so.

Iowa: BroadNet connect Expands Broadband Access | Communication and IT Services for Health Care, Business and Government

Under a joint program specifically designed to deliver business-scale broadband technologies to rural communities, several communities in Iowa are now a part of BroadNet connect’s new high-bandwidth fiber optic network. When all projects are complete, the selected cities and municipal services across Iowa will have access to broadband technology and other IT services that can ride over the high speed network.


The program began with a grant that was part of the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP) from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to support the deployment of broadband infrastructure, enhance and expand data centers, encourage sustainable adoption of broadband service, and develop and maintain a nationwide public map of broadband service capability and availability. BroadNet connect (BNc), a communications and IT services subsidiary of UnityPoint Health, then partnered with community leaders to build an operating network that closes any “digital divide” between rural and urban communities.


“Originally, the goal was to bring on just a few customers,” said Rodney Brown, executive director of BroadNet connect. “However we were able to exceed that goal exponentially due to our ability to not only provide broadband access, but to provide other solutions like cloud services that can flow over our network. We’ve really taken the critical seed money and grown a larger network than we had hoped for in our most ambitious targets. We're connecting communities to an extremely robust backbone. The services these communities can now have access to, and the businesses they can attract, are unlimited.”


“What this ultimately means,” said James A. Erb, Mayor of Charles City, “is that our community can attract and support business operations with high bandwidth demands. Everything you can do in a skyscraper you can now do on our main street – big data, heavy communications, telemedicine, and so on. If your business has a communications demand, we can meet it.”


“City services will benefit tremendously,” said Rod Bradley, Denison Chief of Police, “and not merely emergency services. Yes, police and fire will have a much faster and reliable communications infrastructure, but everyone from our city clerk to the utility offices will be able to perform more efficiently and give greater value to the community.”
