Communicate effectively

Effective communication

Conveying a message to other people correctly might sound easy . . .. but it’s a process that is often fraught with error.” 

Many people struggle to communicate effectively – verbally not writing. This can leads to confusion, frustration, useless effort and mislead opportunities.

When people talk, ” listen completely.”

. . a good communication skills builds better career and personal success.

In my previous job I found that good communication is one of the top soft skills to master. Being a career counsellor and consultant, I found one should soft spoken in terms of conveying the message effectively. Communication will only be successful between the two if both individuals understand the key messages make across. Communication is one of the most important skills that we need to succeed in the workplace and also socially. Think of how often we communicate with people during the day.

We write emails, do meetings, make conference calls, Create reports, presentations, debates and what not! . . We can spend our entire day communicating. So, it stands to reason that communicating clearly and effectively can enhance productivity . We communicate through three kind of modes – In person, online and verbally. So I would like to share my experiences in these particular modes : 

In person –

If you’re not good at conveying what you feel. Then you should learn this technique asap. Face to face communication often leaves a greater impact as compared to online or written communication. When we do face to face communication, the person sitting in front observes your expression, your words and of course your body posture. Be polite in terms of your body also, the way you sit or stand, the way you walk tells very much about your personality. Make people comfortable around you, so that they can feel better and can listen to you clearly. It is important to create kind and healthy workplace where your ideas are really heard where Collaboration is smooth and seamless.

 Also when you talk in person make sure you look direct into the eyes of listener, this is my personal experience, listener listen to you more carefully than usual also you’ll feel confident of what you’re conveying.

Online –

Poor communicators often feel frustrated that they don’t get feedback in meetings, emails and planning. They present their ideas, explain their plan and wait for questions but get nothing. Being a good communicator requires the ability to sit and listen, in a way that invites the conversation. Be conscious about time for input, learn some new techniques of writing emails and project planning, carefully observe your colleagues how they convey their messages and presentation effectively, learning something new daily might help you overcome bad skills and help you to boost good communication skills. 

 Verbally –

One of among the required mode of conveying messages and proposals effectively, now this requires the words you choose, you need to be a  master in this area. Your words can help  what you want to achieve. Words can only make your deal better, Your words can get you what you are praying for. So choose your words wisely, by choosing words appropriately which describes your thoughts effectively. As compared to other mode of communication this particular one requires more attention and advanced skills. In general, words have much power, they can build a bond stronger, and if chosen stupidly . . We all know the outcome and sometimes worst.

When we communicate through person mode or online mode, both involves facial expressions and that’s the plus point which takes presentation one level up may be sometimes more than that. But one should be more careful while choosing words for conveying messages, correct use of words makes conversation effective and impressive at the same time. 

Below are some tips for effective communication and  how to choose appropriate words for communication: 

  • Keep word and phrase choice appropriate to the context. Do your research properly regarding the matter. 
  • A slighter precise word can still be the right word. 
  • It’s best to choose the word that communicates your point while evoking the tone of your docs
  • Do your research and stay true to your voice.

    जिज्ञासा से सुनो। ईमानदारी से बोलो।
    जब हम जिज्ञासा के साथ सुनते हैं, तो हम उत्तर देने के इरादे से नहीं सुनते हैं। हम शब्दों के पीछे क्या है वो जानने के लिए सुनते हैं।

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!|
