Abstract
Communication is a viable human activity that has been with man since creation. It transcends all sphere of human endeavour. It pervades all institutions in the society. Ironically, recent studies have shown that the communication climate in some organizations has been sourly. This necessitated the study in Akwa Ibom State polytechnic, Ikot Osurua. The hues and cries were on poor job performance arising from lateness to work, absenteeism and general insensitivity to the urgency to ‘raise the bar’ of productivity. The study sought to find out the communication style. The exploratory research method was adopted using qualitative methods. The explanation building design was utilized to build responses. Results indicated that the communication climate still needed to adopt constant meetings in the institution so as to bring various component units together so as to engender better job performance.
