Difficulties in communication can hamper the ability of employees to feel connected to their job, to their working group, and to their organization. Often these difficulties stem from speech, language, or hearing problems or perhaps due to limited expertise in business communication skills.
Here are a few ways in which communication difficulties hinder people from connecting at work:
1. A foreign dialect keeps them from being understood by their coworkers.
2. Stuttering keeps them from talking smoothly and becomes distracting to their peers, customers, suppliers, and their supervisors.
3. Fear of speaking holds some employees back from contributing their ideas, which could otherwise help their organizations grow.
4. Limited experience in designing and delivering effective presentations keeps employees from getting their message considered by important stakeholders.
The good news is that there are professionals who can help people in organizations perform more effectively by improving their communication skills and in so doing, help them feel more connected to their organizations. These professionals are called speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
