Wars are often a chaotic mess and the defending nation must have open communication lines to properly stave off the advancing strike forces. Once the communication is knocked out the defending nation will lose much of its ability to execute its defense strategy against the attacking army.
In the future robotic armies will be defending entire nations. However, an electronic attack prior to an invading army strike will most likely render the nations capability to operate its tele-robotic unmanned fighting vehicles, which considering the cost of acquisition, maintenance and replacement this is not pretty.
Worse think of the potential eventuality of the aggressor army capturing all these robotic fighting machines, swapping out chips and adding them as mobile robotic infantry to fight for their side against their owners? Without communication the defense army would be helpless to stop the robots and would be forced to fire upon them, eliminating those assets or be killed by them.
Communicating in everyday life and in social situations is a great and useful skill to possess, but as you may have figured out, such skills don’t take you very far in the board room or with business clients. In professional situations, you will find that the communication skills you need to master take on a decidedly more formal and pointed framework.
It is crucial in professional situations, especially with money at stake, to give other people confidence in your abilities to be stable and professional in your daily dealings. Here are a few quick tips for building assertive communication skills in your professional life.
