Role of Communication Skills in a GD

GD is a selection parameter for almost all good exams and this test judges a lot many things of the candidates. Effectively GD judges 3-4 OLQ’s in one go for a candidate. So GD could be a good opportunity to prove yourself and your qualities which no doubt would be tested through other tests in the series. What and how should a GD be done has already been cleared in my previous articles. In this article I will focus more on what is the role of effective communication.

Communication is really very important as it leads to a clear flow of data in the group and everybody contributes to get the problem resolved or discuss the minute of the details for the topic given. Communication does not simply means speaking good English, a lot more is needed for this. The member having effective communication skill should have the clear idea of what the topic is all about and what and how to represent the data for it. The data flow in a particular order is the most important so that the clear information flows from one end to the other. Also in this manner his points would be accepted by the group and more additions to the information could be done. The following could be helpful:
  • Effective communication can lead to attention of the group and group member acceptance builds in. This is a very essential quality of a person because during the time of crisis one should be radically accepted by the group so that the team performs well in the time of crisis.
  • Also every time a person speaks there should be a value add in the discussion and not just speaking skills are being shown. If value addition is felt, members will go along and this can work in positive direction for the aspirants.
  • GD and debate are always different. There you can hold a motion and continuously speak for the motion or against, but in GD a clear viewpoint needs to be established related to the topic.
  • Supplement points with examples and happenings of the world so that every member can relate to it.
  • Even if you want to interfere or say something in between say using words like excuse- me or please listen gentlemen or i agree with you, but…. Using these add an emotional value and works for your advantage.
    group discussion
At the end GTO would ask someone to conclude and the leader is chosen by the group consent, so work accordingly so that you could be the one. Body language is very important and I would deal it in a separate article. Still If you feel the need of individualised assessment and mocks that can be taken from your home itself through my mentoring program or you have a query bothering your mind which hinders your preparation drop me a mail at jayendrapsingh@gmail.comor add me on Fb and drop in a message. It would be a pleasure to help and resolve queries and clear doubts which are more often myths that are present in the place. Believe in yourself and it really works magical in SSB.
