4 Great Communication Skills

Here are 4 general communication skills that have been edited by “Brandywine“.  Really good reminders for all of us:

#1)  UNDERSTAND THE BASICS OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS

– Know what communication really is:   it’s transferring signals/messages between a sender & receiver through various methods.

Have courage to say what you think.  Be confident in knowing that you contribute to conversations.

Practice.  Develop your communication skills.

#2)  ENGAGE YOUR AUDIENCE

Make eye contact.

Use gestures.   Make your whole body talk!

– Don’t send mixed messages.  Make your words, gestures, facial expressions and tone match.

Be aware of what your body is saying.  Body language often says more than a mouthful of words.

Manifest constructive attitudes and beliefs.  Be sensitive to others feelings.

Develop effective listening skills.

#3)  USE YOUR WORDS

Enunciate your words.  Speak clearly and don’t mumble.

Pronounce your words correctly.  People will judge your competency through your vocabulary.

Use the right words.  If you don’t know what a word means, don’t use it.

Slow down your speech.

#4)  USE YOUR VOICE

Develop your voice – a high or whiny voice is not perceived to be one of authority.  Practice your voice and your tone.

Animate your voice.  Avoid monotone and use dynamics.

Use appropriate volume.  Adjust your volume to the environment around you.
