Communication is a very important and an integral part of social relations. The concept of communication is primarily the exchange of information between subjects of communication. Therefore, information cannot be used without communications. Community education, communication, and interaction played a crucial role even at the origins of sociality.
It is worth noting that in the conditions of fundamental changes occurring in society at the stage of post-industrial development and a rapidly emerging information society occurring in the context of globalization, communication in society is a very topical issue. The ongoing global transformation into information – communicative society is accompanied not only by the penetration of communication into all spheres of society. The emergence and development of a qualitatively new type of communicative structures and processes, a profound rethinking of the communicative nature of social reality, and modern changes in the social communicative sphere have a special place and the role of communication in the development of society.
The Importance of Communication Skills
Communication skills are the ability of a person to establish contact with other people, correctly interpret their speech, and behavior, as well as adequately respond them. Communication skills are pivotal for a number of professions (journalism, psychology, trade, and acting) and business, where interaction with others acquires the status of art.
Speech and communication skills are developing since early childhood. Communication is critical for human survival in society. Philosophers, sociologists, political scientists, and psychologists recognized the role of society, public institutions in the formation of personality, considering it as a product of socialization, and noted the need to analyze the reverse impact of an individual on the functioning of society, on its culture, and the necessity to study the mechanisms of human communication. The formation of communication is promoted by collective games and exercises for the development of fine motor skills. It is useful to attend various exhibitions, events, training and public speaking classes for children and adults who want to improve their communication skills.
