Often, a more talented and hardworking employee gets ignored while others get more recognition, raise & promotions.
Unknowingly, we project an indecisive mind, a rough personality, lack of confidence or inability to take others along and derail our career growth.
Sharing an article on How to be the best communicator in office - it talks about what changes you can bring in your communication to achieve rapid growth and rise to the top.

Nicely written.
The key to success is the words you chose and how you speak them. At times as you said mere arrangement of words makes lot of difference to the meaning and the impact that it would have on others.
And the most difficult is to do so speaking. While writing, we may edit it after the article is fully written and also ask our friends or well-wishers to proofread it for us. However while speaking, it is just we by our own self.
Thanks for the share. :-)

What you say and how you say it determines how you are seen by other people and that has an important role in deciding our success.
Nice writeup Bodhisutra. Had some amazing insights.
Will share with my friends :)

Thanks people for the appreciation.
@Ankita: Rightly said. While writing, we do get a chance to review, speaking is more real time.
Your career depends on your work as well as how others see you and their major source of impression about you is how you talk, the words you use and the way you use them.
You'd find very few people who reach the top with bad communication skills. You either learn them or you get stuck.

I'd suggest that discuss some communication contributions with your reluctant communicator. You don't want to pressurise them but ensure they know that as a valued team member their thoughts and ideas are useful...if people only knew them. Small steps, first. You can always discuss a meeting beforehand and work out where and when to make a contribution.
One of the biggest challenges are the reluctant communicators - people who would rather not be clear about what they expect and want and also, what problems they face.
May be its their personality trait or maybe thats just the way they are - but shouldn't we be open to modify our personality traits and be more willing to openly communicate in office??

Usually, people who do not open up or are unclear are so because of a reason.
The best way to open up a reluctant communicator would be to find out the reasons and resolve the pending issues. However, in a professional setting you will have to measure the benefits of opening up someone vs the time and effort that would be required.
A more cost/time effective approach would be to put reluctant communicators at positions where communication is not a core requirement while where it is a core requirement, put people who naturally are better/open communicators.
