Six Effective Communication Tips
Have you ever noticed that many people talk, but not all communicate with effectiveness?
There is a tremendous difference between talking and communicating. Effective communication means making a connection with the other person who we believe really understands us.
Effective communication skills can be a tremendous asset in all aspect of your life.Why is effective communication so powerful?
The answer to that question can be found in a quote by Kim Krizan from the movie “Waking Life,” “what we all want is for someone to understand us, and to feel we have connected.” When we connect, we feel a special affinity with the person who we believe really understands us.
Communication is how your message is delivered and how it is received. It is two-way, involving both the sender, and the receiver.
Effective communication involves not only words, but your body language, what “voice” you use, and the art of listening.
How can you improve your communication skills?
The following tips can help you to communicate more clearly and effectively
