Therefore, motivation and proper communication have contributed immensely to the development of the organisation and also motivation and communication cannot work in isolation.
This piece of work on motivation and communication is aimed at demonstrating how the power of communication can be used in motivating in an organisation. Before motivation can take place; information has to be passed on to employees in a way, which will make it easy for them to understand the information being passed on.
Effective exchange of meaning can exert constructive force in everyday, life and in an organisation. Effective communication is therefore the answer to managerial problem and the attainment of managerial objectives.
The problems facing most managers today can be analysed as people-centered. That is, people (employees) have their roots in a lack of understanding – causing apathetic, negative and hostile attitudes and resultant actions or reactions of individuals at different levels in an organisation.
