Role of Language in Effective Managerial Communication

Madhulika Jha, Ph.D.


Why are some managers more successful than others? Why do some managers seem to make all the right decisions while others flounder?

You might at first assume the successful ones are lucky, or can attribute their success to intelligence, personality, or even the environment in which they grew up.

What might not be readily apparent is that successful practitioners have acquired specific knowledge that contributes to their high performance.

The New Spirit of Business: Importance of Managerial Communication

The new spirit of business must be marked by efficient managerial communication. To build, to develop and to run business means, first of all, to communicate, to transmit information, opinions and decisions and, at the same time, to receive answers to such. In practice, the manager is required to have certain qualities that are indispensable for the managerial activity, and the ability to communicate efficiently is one of them.

Because of the changes occurring in the business environments, and the ever-growing complexity of business and of the managers' responsibilities, the topic of managerial communication has become a matter of great interest and significance.

A series of valuable theoretical studies have been published lately. They focus on the role of managerial communication and its implications for efficient company performance. Also special courses of business communication and negotiation have been introduced in universities.

This article emphasizes the role of communication competence in the fulfillment of the manager's complex tasks. The study discusses several approaches and types of managerial communication and analyses their implications for the efficiency of the managerial act. The study insists on the necessity of developing the managerial communication abilities by means of grasping the modern communication techniques and psychological techniques that allow harmonizing the interpersonal communication relations in business.
