Today's competitive word demands an individual processes good communication skills. Sound technical knowledge alone does not help an individual to succeed professionally, often brilliant studens and employees who are technically sound and hard working do not succeed either in getting good jobs or promotions. This is mainly because globalization has redefined the skill-sets required to be successful. The increased diversity in the employment market today requires refined communication skills and an impressive personality. That's why to succeed in the new global environment, an individual need to focus on the development of their personalities through proficiency in communication and other soft skills. Recently Fourth Dean's committee of Indian Council of Agriculture Research recommended to develop communication skills of graduates of Agricultural Universities in our country. But adequate and relevant instructional materials are not available for guidance and practice.
This book is specially prepared to suit the syllabus requirement of State Agricultural Universities (SAU's) and Central Agricultural Universities (CAU's). It is useful to the undergraduate students and to the graduate/post graduate students to take up various competitive examinations conducted by Indian Council of Agriculture Research, Union Public Commission and State Public Commissions. Besides it is also useful to the administrators and managers to become good leaders and general public to develop effective communication skills. It will be an asset for all those committed to the development of their personality and communication skills.
The main focus of the book is on Listening, Reading, Writing, Oral Communication, Non Verbal Communication, Presentation skills, Public speaking, Organizing Group discussion, Seminars and conferences, Note taking, Precise writing, Field Diary, Lab record, Structural and Functional grammar, Bibliography, Abstracting, Foot note, Summarizing and Indexing.
