Clear and concise oral communication with others influences just about every facet of our lives. It especially holds true in the business world. People who speak with heavy accents because English isn’t their first language can have a distinct disadvantage even if their syntax is perfect. Heavy accents are especially hard to understand during conversations over the phone.
If you’d like to soften your accent, look to Kristin Nelson Verhine to help you become more comprehensible. Kristin has been a speech-language pathologist since 1998, and she has multiple professional certifications.
Concise English pronunciation in business is important because English is the most widely used language in the worlds of trade and commerce. As a result, having an excellent command of English enunciation for business is vital for success in many people’s careers. It’s especially true for international students and workers who want to expand their professions in a country whose official or dominant language is English.
English is the major means of communication for businesses that are small, medium and large. The use of the language has made it a vital part of success in the highly competitive corporate world and especially today, when many countries’ economies have gone global. You could have a superb command of written English, but if your clients, prospective clients and coworkers have a tough time understanding you during an oral conversation, your performance, career and livelihood could be severely hindered.
If you want to improve your oral-communication skills, know that each person’s sessions from Optimal Communication are planned, individualized and tailored to him or her. After an initial assessment, Optimal Communication will establish the areas of your speaking that are in most need of improvement.
