- Listening is the key to effective communication. However, when you listen don’t just listen to the words but try to listen to the body language as well. After all, actions speak louder than words!
- We know that this is the era of instant messenger, but that form of communication should be used when it is not possible to communicate with that person face to face. So, instead of exchanging messages with your colleague, who is sitting two desks away, get up and make a conversation in-person!
- Be clear in your communication. Try to be precise, but if you believe that your explanation should be supported by an example to communicate the message better, go for it.
- Don’t rush to communicate the message i.e. don’t keep talking. Take a pause to collect your thoughts. Also, take a few seconds to move your eyes from corner to corner and check if people are actually listening to you.
- If you don’t agree with what another person is saying or you have negative thoughts, don’t lash out on that person. Be respectful, and show your disagreement in the same manner as your agreement.
Whether you are a beginner or trying to take your communication skills to another level, effective communication is ultimately all about striking a balance between talking, asking, and listening.
