1.0 INTRODUCTIONCommunications is fundamental to the existence and survival of humans as wellas to an organization. It is a process of creating and sharing ideas, information, views,facts, feelings, etc. among the people to reach a general understanding. A Superior/Manager may be highly qualified and skilled but if he does notpossess good communication skills, all his ability becomes irrelevant. A manager mustcommunicate his directions effectively to the subordinates to get the work done fromthem properly. Same applies to companies without an effective means or channels ofcommunication may lead to low productivity, breakdown or barriers ofcommunication, as well as disaffection and disinterest of employees towards good jobdelivery.The study of communication is important, because every administrativefunction and activity involves some form of direct or indirect communication.Whether planning and organizing or leading and monitoring, Superiors/administratorscommunicate with and through other people. This implies that every person’scommunication skills affect both personal and organizational effectiveness (Brun,2010; Summers, 2010). It seems reasonable to conclude that one of the most inhibitingforces to organizational effectiveness is a lack of effective communication (Lutgen-Sandvik, 2010). Moreover, good communication skills are very important to onessuccess as a top administrator.
