I wrote this article to help you communicate effectively with people
Here are the 5 ways to improve your communication skills:
According to John Maxwell, the No.1 criteria for the advancement and promotion of professionals is the ability to communicate effectively. If you want to communicate, connect.
Try connecting with people. Pick up your mobile and call someone. Go to someone’s home and speak up. Do you remember the Airtel advertisement a few years ago?
The tag line there was “Express Yourself”. So express yourself. The more you express and connect better is your communication.
RASA is the Sanskrit word that means juice.
I could elaborate it as Receive, appreciate, summarize and ask.
Whenever you are communicating with someone, bring the RASA or the juice.
Receive what the other person is giving and sending you through communication.
Appreciate the other person while he/she is communicating with you.
In between summarize what the other person said and ask questions. When you ask questions, the person will understand that you are interested in him/her.
3. LIFT THE ENERGY OF PEOPLE AROUND YOU
The best thing you can do is to lift the energy of the people around you. The world is full of toxicity and breakdown. If you can lift the energy you are an effective communicator.
Use the language of leadership. Talk about what you love to do. Talk about your future. Talk about opportunities. Talk about the things that are working in life.
According to Joh Don – I don’t know what I think until I write it down.
You can create two columns on a piece of paper and write the languages.
The language of Victim Hood
Language of Leadership
|My life is not giving me the real returns||Together we can make a great day|
My friends and family are the worst people
My real asset is my work Wow!
|People are basically bad, and they cheat||I won this project. I am thrilled.|
4. BUILD RAPPORT
Rapport is power. Tony Robbins talks about “Match and Mirror”. The feeling of commonality creates rapport.
The percentage of communication through words is 7% only. 93% is non-verbal communication i.e. what you do not say
Dr. Ericson says – People like people who are like themselves or how they would like to be.
People dislike people who are not like them or who they do not want to be.
To build rapport and mirror people during conversations.
5. DEFINE YOURSELF
According to Les Brown, if you can define who you are? What you have and why should I care can give a boost to your communication.
To define what you really want. What is your code of honor or your value system?
Tell people what you have, and why should people listen to you.
So connect with people and build rapport. Talk about the language of leadership and define yourself.
