Point to be remember.

One should avoid multitasking or exchanging reactions with others while a person is communicating, as it can prove very discouraging or distracting.

Is it effective communication or basic manners?
by King Kopra on May 18, 2011 01:29 PM

These types of articles are for people who have not been taught manners at home during childhood. Humanity, ethics, intergrity and character are taught at home not at a grooming institute and are a must for good living.

Do not be overwhelmed by the western dose of quick fixes, they are bound to fail and add to stress, in trying to do play acting.

Take a holistic approach, improve total self by relying on readily available free local sources.

half glass or full glass

"Offering someone a glass of water is the least you can do." but the picture shows only half glass of water.

The Age old wisdom of "Congruence in thought, speech and actions" is to be aimed. Inability to do that exposes lack of clarity and understanding of life - office or elsewhere

another irony in india-- if someone tries to correct anyone one for the good purpose, people tend to teach him the etiquette. i am sorry to try teaching god things. i will not repeat this thing with indians..

I can understand how you feel. I used to post replies in Rediff few years back and was dissappointed with some of the responses.
However, I continued doing what I believed in and will do so in the future.

Please do remember that everyone here have varied degree of understanding and knowledge. Some of them just try to irritate you. Theyy do it deliberately. So please do not get offended by them.

What you are doing is something most of us cannot. Keep up the good work.

Well Meaning Article

The article on Etiquette (and 'not on English language') if taken in the right spirit will certainly help those who follow it.(Certainly the effort will be wasted on those who think they know everything!)

Incomplete article
by navin k on May 17, 2011 12:07 PM

I have no clue why this article was written in the first place.
Is this for people working in the MNC's? Or is it for people working in Nationalised Bank? Or hotels? or supermarkets? It is rather confusing.

Firstly, this article is incomplete. The writer is trying to imbibe certain western customs into a much broader subject of communication.

A namaste is how we greet in India. A handshake is what the West follows. Does it mean that a namaste is not effective communication?
If we fold our hands in front of our elders, it is giving respect. If you do the same in an office in USA, it supposedly means you are uninterested!

Effective communication is a huge subject, which varies from industry to industry, country to country and people to people.
What has been written here is probably for school kids to have a brief idea of communication in offices.

The writer should be very clear on the aspects of communication and body language. They are two different subjects. Trying to club both of them and writing it as "Effective Communication" is a feeble attempt.
