By applying the 12 points outlined in this video, you should be able to improve your communication skills instantly! Effective communication is one of the most important life skills that a person can have. Whether you want to have better conversations in your personal and social life, or get your ideas across better at work, you can learn how to communicate more effectively.
Appreciation and respect can go a long way when you’re trying to improve your communication skills. People will be more open to communicating with you if you convey respect for them and their ideas. And make sure to really listen to what the other person is saying. The person speaking to you should be the most important thing, at that moment. Of course, it’s important that you connect with the person you are talking to, and eye contact is essential when having a meaningful conversation. So, put down your devices and look at the person who is speaking to you. Don’t answer calls, check texts or notice vibrations. Let it all pass. And don’t forget to pay attention to your body language!
There are many ways to have a better communication, but asking questions will not only help you understand what the other person is saying, it also indicates that you’re actually interested in what they’re saying. And if you want to show that you really understand, then paraphrasing is one of the simplest communication techniques you can use.
Paraphrasing is a question that is designed to clarify the listeners understanding. Each paraphrase is phrased as a CLOSED question – in other words it can be answered with a “Yes” or “No” answer. Each paraphrase starts with a prefix – e.g. “So what you’re saying is”, “Are you saying”, “So you seem”, “So you think that”, “So you feel that”, “Ah, so it’s…..”, “It sounds like”, “So………”, etc. The prefix is followed by a re-statement of what has just been said by the speaker, and should be no longer than one sentence.
You see, the more you pay attention to how you express yourself to others, the better you’ll get at communicating effectively. So give it a try! Apply these tips in your day-to-day interactions, and you will improve your communication skills instantly.
