Why is verbal communication so important?

Why is verbal communication so important?

Are all orators saints?

Hitler was a great orator

But was he a decent human being?

King George VI had a speech defect

But he was one of the finest rulers!!

Why is verbal communication so important?

Glib talkers may be blessed

With a truckload of social skills

But do they actually contribute anything

To their precious society?

Apart from boring our pants off

With a thousand inane details

About their own pretentious selves

Why is verbal communication so important?

Is speech the best judge of character?

Do words speak louder than actions?

There are a million souls

In this monstrous country

Whose blood, sweat and tears

Shape our everyday life

They may not speak much

But it is what they do

That truly matters

But do we give them the importance

That they so richly deserve?

Why is verbal communication so important?

The purpose of an interview

Is to select the right fit for the job

But do our corporates

Truly understand what that means?

They stress so much on verbal communication

Now, there are so many candidates

Who are extremely skilled

But they do not get selected

Because they stammer

Or because they make pauses

Or because they are socially awkward

Or because they are autistic

Or even worse, because they are not polished enough

There are also many candidates

Who have inadequate skills

But they get selected

Simply because they speak fluently

Or because they are outgoing

Or even worse, because they have a certain aura about them

Ultimately, they do not do justice

To the role for which they have been chosen

As a result, the industry suffers

It follows too, that we suffer

Why then, is verbal communication so important?
