The verbal communication is communication utilizing words and voice. That is, what words, phrases, expressions the communicating person uses. The verbal communication also includes voice pronouncement, laying the stress, pauses, etc.

The verbal communication tells us about a person´s word power and his or her ability to use it. It is greatly influenced by that person´s social status, experience, intentions and their current health.  

In the voice pronouncement, we further distinguish the following features:  

  • acuteness
  • tone quality
  • frequency
  • intonation
  • cadence
  • stylization

The main component of communication is also the  non-verbal communication.

It is all very easy to trust nice words of the others: how many skills they possess, how hard they will work, how they work overtime, etc. The reality, however, is anything but ideal. Company owners know their bit about it. Most likely to complain are managers and owners who do not check on new workers, who do not ask for references, do not call their last employer or carry out a spot check. Regardless of whether you are in production, construction, a sweetshop or a development department, it si always essential to verify information. It may not be outright fraud or a lie, very often it is just ignorance, different experience, etc. A timely checking will spare you a lot of time and money.
