previous article first!
So let’s begin the journey from a good English speaker to a good communicator or person with effective communication skills.
LEARN THE DIFFERENCE!
Communicator! speaker! what’s the difference? This is the first question that arises. Isn’t it? Well just for the time, keep in your mind, a speaker just speaks but a person with effective communication skills or good communication skills -first LISTEN, then ANALYSES, and then SPEAKS.
Till the present time I hope that we all have practiced enough speaking, Now it’s time for us to practice listening and that’s a thing very few of us do or practice. But that’s the most important point or the key point in building effective communication skills.
Listening!! What shit is he talking about? How can it be important?
If any of the above mentioned expressions was yours then let me just ask you a very simple question.
WHEN YOU TALK TO A PERSON ABOUT ANYTHING WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THE OTHER PERSON TO DO?
Do u want him to just speak and speak without listening to you or do u want him to listen to you and then agree or disagree with you?
I hope you got the answer.
So the next question that arises is- HOW can I practice listening?
And the answer is pretty simple and you can do it anytime, anywhere without any equipment, web application or any lectures; the only condition being you must have a person around you and of course who’s not MUTE! (BAD JOKE!I KNOW).
So now just PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!
LISTENER V/S GOOD COMMUNICATOR
Listening is important but is not sufficient, So the next step that comes into play is ANALYSING!
It includes listening and simultaneously preparing the content that you need to say as a reply to what the person is saying. You need to be very choosy about the content that you are going to speak. It must be a quality content. Framing the best sentences in fraction of seconds. THE QUESTION THAT NOW STRIKES IS
Just say what you would have expected or wanted the other person to speak if you were in the speaker’s place.
Isn’t it simple?
In order to be a perfectionist at the communication skills. You just need to follow and practice these 3 simple steps in your day to day life.
Now let me just tell you the so called-secret way that helps in developing good communication skills and simultaneously that lets you learn. In more simple words, a way that gives you money for learning or improving communication skills.
Just do a job that enables you to interact with a lot of people. Find any job that you feel comfortable with. Be it at a call center job, a network marketing job it doesn’t matter just interact and make sure you follow the following steps.
Now let me just leave it to you all. Whether you wanna live your whole life speaking and not being able to influence anyone or you want to influence and inspire each and every person you meet. The choice is yours.
