The Impressive and Incredible secret to communcication

The Impressive and Incredible secret to communcication

Today’s Message:

Many people don’t know the art of communication but we all talk and communicate. Knowing the art of communication allows us to perfect something most of us do without a second though and often do it poorly. This Guide will hopefully make you a better communicator.

1. The first step to being the best communicator is not in fact talking at all but listening. A person who truly listens and understands what is being said will better understand the situation and be able to respond more effectively  People do not realize nor can I express how important listening is.

2. The second part of a conversation is how to respond. You want to start off with something positive about the person you are addressing. This does two things. It allows you to start of the conversation of a positive note. It also makes you seem less selfish.

A lot of people don’t realize that a conversation that doesn’t start of this way can lead to problems or arguments. People who start off the conversation negatively  with insult, or about themselves can lead to devaluing of what your about to or going to say. If they feel your going to respond negatively or with insult they might cut you off or refuse to listen to what you have to say. If they feel that you are a self centered or have selfish motives they aren’t really as willing to receive you.

3. The third part is how to actually how to end the response. The third part is the easiest part because their isn’t actually any guidelines to how you should say what your saying, aside from the normal. Things like be respectful. The trick though is to end the conversation with yourself. It allows the person to feel less obligated and things to go more settle.

These types of conversation aren’t perfect but they are superior way of communicated. An art and flow to the way we talk. If you try these tips and perfect them.
