Why communication skills important?:

Why communication skills important? Why Communications Skills Are So Important Improve your communication skills with James Manktelow & Amy Carlson. The purpose of communication is to get your message across to others clearly and unambiguously. Doing this involves effort from both the sender of the message and the receiver. And it's a process that can be fraught with error, with messages often misinterpreted by the recipient. When this isn't detected, it can cause tremendous confusion, wasted effort and missed opportunity. In fact, communication is only successful when both the sender and the receiver understand the same information as a result of the communication.

Slide 3:

By successfully getting your message across, you convey your thoughts and ideas effectively. When not successful, the thoughts and ideas that you convey do not necessarily reflect your own, causing a communications breakdown and creating roadblocks that stand in the way of your goals – both personally and professionally. In a recent survey of recruiters from companies with more than 50,000 employees, communication skills were cited as the single more important decisive factor in choosing managers. The survey, conducted by the University of Pittsburgh's Katz Business School, points out that communication skills, including written and oral presentations, as well as an ability to work with others, are the main factor contributing to job success. In spite of the increasing importance placed on communication skills, many individuals continue to struggle with this, unable to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively – whether in verbal or written format. This inability makes it nearly impossible for them to compete effectively in the workplace, and stands in the way of career progression. Getting your message across is paramount to progressing. To do this, you must understand what your message is, what audience you are sending it to, and how it will be perceived. You must also weigh-in the circumstances surrounding your communications, such as situational and cultural context.

What is communication skills?:

What is communication skills? Communication is the art of successfully sharing meaningful information with people by means of an interchange of experience. Coaches wish to motivate the athletes they work with and to provide them with information that will allow them to train effectively and improve performance. Communication from the coach to athlete will initiate appropriate actions. This however, requires the athlete to receive the information from the coach but also to understand and accept it.

Why communication important in our life?:

Why communication important in our life? At first, it may appear that face-to-face communication consists of taking it in turns to speak. While the coach is speaking, the athlete is expected to listen and wait patiently until the coach finishes. On closer examination, it can be seen that people resort to a variety of verbal and non-verbal behaviour in order to maintain a smooth flow of communication. Such behaviour includes head-nods, smiles, frowns, bodily contact, eye movements, laughter, body posture, language and many other actions. The facial expressions of athletes provide feedback to the coach. Glazed or down turned eyes indicate boredom or disinterest, as does fidgeting. Fully raised eyebrows signal disbelief and half raised indicate puzzlement. Posture of the group provides a means by which their attitude to the coach may be judged and act as pointer to their mood. Control of a group demands that a coach should be sensitive to the signals being transmitted by the athletes. Their faces usually give a good indication of how they feel, and a good working knowledge of the meaning of non-verbal signals will prove invaluable to the coach.

The library:

The library In computing, a library is a collection of similar objects that are stored for occasional use - most frequently, programs in source code or object code form, data files, script s, template s, font s , and physical storage units such as tape cartridges. Here are some common types of libraries.1) A program library is a collection of (usually) precompiled, reusable programming routine LEARN MORE Stored Procedures s that a programmer can "call" when writing code so that the programmer doesn't have to write it. A dynamic link library (DLL) is one type of program library. Another type of program library is a class library, whose stored routines are class definitions in object-oriented programming (OOP). Graphical user interface ( GUI ) components such as scroll bars, buttons, and windowing routines are generally stored in a class library. 2) A storage library is a collection of physical storage media such as tapes or disks and a way to access them. A tape library, for example, contains tape cartridges and a mechanism that moves them into and out of the drive(s) where their content is read or updated. 3) A data library is the area of a data center (a centralized area housing computer systems and equipment) where storage media are archived. Online service provider s also sometimes refer to a directory on a server containing files for downloading as a data library. 4) A virtual library is simply the online version of the traditional library. Books and documents are made available over the Web, and may be read on line or downloaded. RELATED GLOSSARY TERMS: trigger

Chilrden section:

Chilrden section The Section's major purpose is to support the provision of the library service and reading promotion to children and young adults throughout the world. Its main objectives are to promote international cooperation in the fields of library services to children and young adults, and to encourage the exchange of experience, education and training and research in all aspects of this subject. The Section's concerns include the provision of library services to all children and young adults in different cultures and traditions in cooperation with appropriate organizations and to adults interacting with children and young adults. The Section works in cooperation with other IFLA Sections and a number of international reading and library associations, including the International Reading Association (IRA) and the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY).

Reference sections:

Reference sections This section is merely a list of the sources that were cited with the text. The list should be alphabetical and should contain all the sources cited within the text (for more detail about citing references and sources within a report or essay, see the Essay Writing Guide ). How references are listed in this section is controlled by guidelines set by the APA. Different types of source have different formats which are used to report them. Listed below are some of the more common types of source and their formats

Mobile library section:

Mobile library section The main aim of the mobile service is to provide access to the facilities of the library service to people in Kirklees who, for whatever reason, have difficulties in getting to a branch library. Each vehicle is staffed by one of our friendly and experienced driver/customer service officers. We try to provide continuity in staffing but relief staff provide cover for sickness and holidays. Sometimes due to unavoidable circumstances (e.g. vehicle breakdown) a halt may have to be cancelled and whenever possible cancellation notices will be posted as close to the halt as possible.


Non-fiction It has books which have facts and sometimes known as information materials. The materials under this category talk about people, places and things. Most of the stock in our Library including textbooks belongs to this group. These materials are classified into ten broad subjects using the method called “The Dewey Decimal Classification.” The subject names are coded by numbers recognized world wide. Below is the Dewey Decimal Classification Chart.

Fiction :

Fiction These books are also known as story books or novels. The Books are shelved in alphabetical order using the author’s surnames. Pupils borrow these books more than the Non- Fiction books

Vocubulary words:

Vocubulary words Vocabulary : words and meaning There are more than 460'000 different words in the Webster Dictionary, but you can understand 80% of normal speech with only the 2'000 more frequent words, and with the 3'000 most frequent words you make 95% of normal speech. So don't be afraid when you'll discover the immense amount of words you don't understand. You will probably learn vocabulary all your life (use flash cards ) but the words you really need are about 3'000. Words are normally thought of as arbitrary associations between sounds and meaning, but nobody forces you to learn them that way. If there's no parent in another language you speak (english umbrella and french ombrelle ) just make one. For example if you are to learn russian for prison, tyioorma , you can think of the torments of prison.This is an age old, proven and efficient way to remember words, and the beauty of the trick is that with time you will forget the mental association but remember the word and its meaning. In the pages about individual languages, I give an indication of how close a language is to other languages, so that you can find out if vocabulary will be a great burden or not.

Slide 14:

A difficult but rewarding part of vocabulary learning is the idioms part. Every human language has ways of speaking, expressions, idioms that it uses to vividly convey a meaning and sometimes a proverbial piece of wisdom. For example I recently hear in an american movie a black man telling his friend that if was better to "check out than to come back home all fucked up", equalling death with the process of checking out at a hotel. Whatever you think of the poetry of that one, you have to master some idiomatic expressions if you want to understand people, and if you use them you will most probably find it highly enjoyable. Orthograph , or the way you write the words, is another story. Some languages made clever reforms that lets you write as you speak and speak as you write, like for example german orspanish , but others are backward on this, like english or french. I recommend the excellent " International Dictionary ", which lists 1200 words in 21 european languages in a very useful format for the student who wishes to compare vocabulary.

That’s all:
