Listening and Communication Skills -- Part 3

Understanding Your Audience
Everyone is listening for the way that your message will  impact them.  It is important to consider the following factors when communicating with another person:
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Ethnic or cultural background.
  • Educational level and occupation.
  • Political and religious affiliations.
  • Prior knowledge of your topic
Considering these factors will help you tailor your message to your receiver and will increase the likelihood of effective communication.

Until next time...
