Benefits of Communication

A leader communicates the objectives, policies, rule and procedures of the enterprise to followers and also communicates the necessary work-orders, instructions and guidance to them, for the proper execution of the intended jobs, to be performed by the group.
4. Communication as an aid to co-ordination
Co-ordination is greatly facilitated when persons doing similar work or related aspects of work, are in perfect mutual understanding with one another – as to the manner and approach to work performance.
5. Communication helps in overcoming resistance
People, in general resist to changes when changes are either not properly communicated to them or the purpose behind introducing such changes is not explained to them.
6. Communication as the basis of good human relations
Communication promotes good human relations, in the organisational life. Apparently communication is transfer of messages; while intrinsically it is transmission of understanding among the sender and the recipients of messages. A free flow of communication, through facilitating transmission of understanding paves the way for the development of good human relations in the organisation.
