What makes a good communicator?
Although the concept of communicating is easy, communicating well takes skill and practice.
How many of us when we communicate are focused on the following goal…
‘To make sure that all participants in a conversation feel equally heard and understood’
Active listening is essential for effective communication and allows you to demonstrate that another person is being heard and understood.
Make it personal - Good communicators create a personal connection by focusing on how their message may impact the other person.
Be clear & specific - Good communicators cut to the chase and understand the value of brevity. You may love to talk, but that doesn’t mean others want to hear it. Good communicators always respect people’s time and choose simple, straightforward words.
Ask questions – Skilled communicators ask good questions to show genuine interest or to clarify their understanding on a certain topic.
