Listening and Communication Skills -- Part 4

Five Keys to Becoming an Effective Communicator
  • Desire - If you have the desire to become an effective communicator, you'll be willing to do what it takes to make it happen.
  • Understanding the communication process - The real challenge in communicating is accurately sending images to others as well as accurately receiving images from them – to convey things exactly as you see them and to receive them exactly as others see them.
  • Mastering basic skills - These include connecting with an audience, conveying messages that the audience can understand, and checking their responses.
  • Practicing - Make effective communication a way of life. Mastering connecting, conveying, and checking responses comes only with practice.
  • Patience - Growth takes time. You need to be patient with yourself while you incorporate and develop your new skills.
Until next time...
