Business communication needs to become interpersonal again. No matter how we believe our human forms came into existence, we were built to need personal contact and function best with face-to-face communication. As children, we desired comfort from touch, a hug from our mothers. As teenagers, we held hands with our boyfriend or girlfriend. As adults in the workforce, we still need to feel that connection and comfort with our families and the people we work with. As Susan RoAne (2008), owner of a speaking, consulting, and coaching business, discusses one way we feel this connection is through getting to know and building trust by communicating in-person. Through this interpersonal interaction, we not only feel more comfortable around the people we collaborate with, but can better share thoughts and understand what those people are saying verbally and on paper (p. 60). Do you trust someone you have never met in person? Most people say no, because there is no connection with you and the person until you meet.
As one can see, communication is about more than just exchanging information. It 's about discerning the emotion and intention behind the information. (Segal, Robinson, & Smith, 2016). Effective communication is also a two-way street.

Effective communication also serves as an instrument for any professional; this also helps to build adaptive, good working relationships between you and your staff/co-workers, which can in turn improve morale and efficiency (Queensland Government, 2016). In the business world to be considered a true professional, one must be able to clearly explain company policies to customers and clients and answer their questions about your products or services (Queensland Government, 2016).

The World is changing. Any time, any day, we are witnesses of the global crisis and its effects. This global phenomenon has caused people to be more and more selective, therefore the competition inside each market is higher than ever. Companies need to diversify themselves in order to face the crisis and win over their competitors. One of the instruments they might use is communication.
