The Importance of Good Communication Skills

Being able to communicate effectively is the most important of all life skills. Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another. Like actors on stage, in our daily life, communication is both vocal and non-verbal, using body language. How well information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are. And hey can be learned or improved by attending drama classes.

Learning acting techniques and developing your communication skills can help all aspects of your life, from your professional life to social gatherings and everything in between. The ability to communicate information accurately, clearly and as intended, is a vital life skill and something that should not be overlooked. It’s never too late to work on your communication skills and by doing so improve your quality of life.

Professionally, if you are applying for jobs or looking for a promotion with your current employer, you will almost certainly need to demonstrate good communication skills. They are needed to speak appropriately with a wide variety of people whilst maintaining good eye contact, demonstrate a varied vocabulary and tailor your language to your audience, listen effectively and work well in a group. Many of these are essential skills that employers seek, and they’re also at the core of the actor's training.
