Why learn to communicate effectively?

“Everything we say signifies; everything counts, that we put out into the world. It impacts on kids, it impacts on the zeitgeist of the time."- Meryl Streep
Communicating effectively is the most sought after skill in todays's world. We have a torrent of thoughts and ideas running in our mind. However we fail to channelise and express it in the right way. Be it a shy child who is anxious to talk or a talkative child who needs to organise his thoughts better! Every child needs to master the skill of speaking confidently and listening intently. Communicating effectively instills confidence, boosts self esteem and helps us channelise and express our thoughts in the best way possible.
