Important skills for the workplace today

Nowadays, workers are being requested getting more and more challenges and difficulties in every aspects of working environments. Employers are looking to people who have special skills which can apply directly to many different tasks. Therefore, people have been competed to figure out and practice their personal skills since they are still in the college. There are many important skills for the workplace but I would to say that not all skills are useful for different kinds of jobs. So, they need to understand what importance for their employments is and then they can follow that to develop the reasonable skills. In this written, I will discuss about three skills which I think they are important for almost working environments. Today, workers really appreciate about teamwork. For that, communication; adaptation and leadership skill are the topic for this article. In the beginning, I want to talk about communication skills. It’s not difficult to understand about the definition of communication skills. That’s the ability to use languages to connect with others. That’s a set of skills which enables a person to convey information to others as well as receive information from them (“Internet date” 2010). The information can be conveyed by different kinds of languages such as talking, eyes contact and behaviors. People with communication skills can make friendly working environments easily. They know how to show their opinions to persuade others as well as they understand other opinions carefully. Clearly, when employees can be easy to exchange ideas, the qualities in teamwork will be improving a lot. Another benefit is avoiding the annoyed feelings when they can’t get other opinions. For example, in a discussion, a worker is trying to show his ideas about a new project. After his speech has been shown, the members can’t understand his ideas. If he has good communication skills, he will know how to show them by different ways to make others understand clearly. His partners and he will feel very comfortable and they may come up with other ideas easily. Therefore, the quality of this project will be better. But if he has very poor communication skills, they will get stuck and uncomfortable. The project can’t go on and the ideas can also be lost. After thinking about this example, everyone can partially understand why employers are looking for people with communication skills. To catch up the modern society, absolutely students can start to practice their skills since they are still in the college. It’s not about where and when they can develop their skills. The most importance is they must be always willing to apply those in daily lives. Some typical instances, making new friends; joining teamwork in studying, practicing talking in the public can be used to develop communicating skills. Moreover, they should be better to use different ways of communication such as written, body languages or eyes contact when they are talking or presenting about anything. Students have more benefits about it because they will be easier to communicate with friends than their competitors. When they come to business, there will be a lot competition going on. The chances to develop their skills will be reduced. In a nutshell, communication skills are becoming more and more important. As the college students, I would like to say that learning communication skills while in the college is a good way to look for a good job in the future. In the following part, I’m going to talking about adaptation skills. People have good adaptation skills are people who can join to a new environment comfortably as well as accept and apply something new easily. With developments of international finance, people are...
