Even an infant can communicate. However, business communication isn't that straight forward and easy. Cultural affinity, intention of the receiver, language barrier and difference in perception - all of them add complexity to this very basic human phenomenon–communication.
Nowadays, more than ever before, organizations mandate sophisticated “executive” communication skills for professionals right from the initial days of their career. Right from day one, professionals are exposed to cross culture situations – communicating across borders through email, telephone and chat services.
