SPEAKING Spoken communication is what we do everyday, often without much thought and sometimes without much skill. Outlined below are the common forms of spoken communication used by engineers and surveyors every day. Some are as simple as an informal greeting of a staff member at the coffee machine.

Some examples of our poor communication skills with clients may include: a poor or nonexistent description of our services and how we will charge for them, our inability to deliver bad news, unwillingness to discuss extra fee when work is requested outside of the original scope of work, and our willingness to “give away the store” in negotiating because we are “nice guys” who want to avoid confrontation. We also may be nervous about making presentations on our client’s behalf to regulators. Once we begin the presentation, we may not read the group’s body language very well (or present good body language ourselves) and don’t know when to stop talking.
