Communication skills are one of the most important skills to acquire in life. To improve your social life, share your knowledge or even share effectively your ideas at work, you have to make great efforts trying to empower your communication, even if very few people do.
Great communication is important in every aspect of our daily lives and it’s also true for business lives. I am going to give you some tips for you to follow to improve your communication skills.
1. Body language.
Make sure you communicate even when you’re not saying a word. If your arms are crossed, you are indirectly saying you are not interested in communicating. Watch how you hold yourself, and make eye contact with the person you are talking to. Body language is in fact a big part of the way we communicate with other people. It’s essential to not let anyone distract you when you are talking in a meeting or a gathering. Keep your focus.
2. Make a short pause before replying.
It is an effective way to not running the risk to interrupt your interlocutor if he or she is taking his or her breath before continuing. Moreover you will show even more interest to the words your interlocutor is saying, and you will listen better what the other person is saying. It’s crucial to be more charismatic and persuasive.
3. Ask questions
Try to question for clarification. It is a way for the person you are talking to, to explain more extensively his words, and a way for you to understand better the sense of its comments. You can then continue with opening questions to go on the conversation. When you are talking, avoid interrupting.
4. Paraphrase your speaker’s words in your own words
This is a way to make sure that you understand your interlocutor properly. By paraphrasing you demonstrate that you are genuinely paying attention to its words.
By listening people’s words, you make them feel important. People will want to be with you because they feel more valuable with you and will begin to find you fascinating. The more you are listening to a person, the more they will trust you. Listening generates trust. Really listen to people and having them feel truly heard is the biggest gift you could ever give.
6. Learn to be confident / manage your anxiety
Paying attention to what your speaker is saying will allow you to increase your self confidence as well and to listen to yourself and manage your eventual stress and to be more assertive: an essential quality for a good conversationer.
7. Don’t forget to smile
Smiling is a great tool to establish eye contact with the people you are talking to. There’s no point on grimacing or frowning in a meeting or a gathering, unless it’s a wake. You can better express what you’re saying when you smile.
8. Be authentic and open minded
Athenticity is about being true to yourself in communication, know your values. It’s about being critical. Open mindiness is about consider other perpectives, alternatives and ideas. Don’t close yourself because you will find a lot point of views and opinions different than yours.
9. No instant judgements
Approach every communication and conversation with an open mind without judging people. We don’t want to listen persons judging or gossiping on other people.
10. Sense of humor
By kidding, you’ll get the attention of the majority of the crowd and they’ll feel that you’re just as approachable, and you will catch people’s attention. Using humor at appropriate times keeps people engaged and helps to connect with them and share your important message.
