Communication is the process of sending and receiving messages. It is the exchange of information and ideas. Effective communication occurs when the receiver receives and interprets the message as intended by the sender. There are two basic forms of communication: nonverbal and verbal. Listening is one of the most important communication skills for personal and organizational success. Listening accounts for a major part of the time spent communicating. Negotiating is the process of working with others to determine a mutually acceptable solution. Meetings with appropriate objectives and planning can be very useful. The following section discusses how to plan and execute good meetings, and the common pitfalls of poor meetings. Creativity and innovation are important for competing in the global economy.
