Why Communication is So Important In IT Industry?

Many people have an impression on IT developers: Coding all the time.

Actually, it is a stereotype. In IT Industry, developers spend more time on communication rather than computers.

So, if you want to become an IT professional, you need to be good at communication.

Even you more enjoy coding.

Think about how much time you will spend on interacting with others?

  1. Check the email box…
  2. Agile Scrum Meeting…
  3. Communicate with colleagues about the needs…

How we can improve our communication?

1 Don’t judge or criticize

People are good at putting themselves in the centre. Everyone think himself/herself is the most important.

It is wrong and we can’t belittle others.

We should respect them firstly and then others will accept our opinion.

2 Think what others need

The key in communication is not think our own interests, like what I need and what I want.

Instead, we should consider what others need and what they want.

Why they want this function?…

Why this part makes them feel bored?…

3 Avoid fighting

As IT developers, sometimes we are easy to think others will accept the logical thinking.

Actually, most people are sensitive and follow their feelings.

From a book (How to Win Friends and Influence People) written by Dale Carnegie, the only way to solve the fighting is to avoid it.

If you never think about how to communicate with others, this is the right time!

Improve the ability of soft skills, and you will find it is valuable for your life.

People will like you and value you back.

From my BI journey, I learn more about soft skills, English at work and tech chit chats.If you are interested in or have any problems with BI, feel free to contact me .
