Background – How to communicate effectively?

Effective communication is something you can learn. Therefore, following these tips will help you improve your communication skills.

  1. Listening - People want to feel heard. Instead of responding with your own words, listen and really pay attention to the other person. To avoid any misunderstandings, ask for clarification. The person who is speaking to you at that time should be the most important in your life. It is important to only have one conversation at once. Talk to one person at a time. You will let the other person know that you don't give your full attention.
  2. Who are you speaking to? - When communicating with friends, it is fine to use informal language and acronyms. However, if you are texting or emailing your boss, "Hey," or "TTYL", or any other informal language should not be used in your message. It is not possible to assume the other person understands the meaning of an acronym. Different acronyms can mean different things to different people. Do you want to be misunderstood or confused? Communicators who are effective use acronyms to target their message according to the audience they are talking to. Keep this in mind when trying to convey your message.
  3. Body language - This is crucial for video conferencing and face-to-face meetings. Open body language and a friendly appearance are important to make you seem more approachable. Do not cross your arms. Keep eye contact with the other person so they know you are paying attention.
  4. Proper message conveying - Although spell and grammar checkers can be life-savers, they are not foolproof. To ensure that you are conveying the intended message, double-check what you write.
  5. Short and precise - Be concise, but specific, in written and verbal communication. If you're responding to an email, ensure that you have read the entire message before you write your reply. You will soon learn to not ramble or provide too much information if you practice enough.
  6. Make notes - Notes can be taken while you're talking to someone or in a meeting. Don't rely on your memory. To ensure that you fully understand the conversation, send a follow up email.
  7. Be quick - You may find you have much to say and don't want to send an email. Instead, you can call the person. Although email is great, it can sometimes be easier to communicate your thoughts verbally.
  8. Think then speak - Before you speak, pause and think before you speak. Pay attention to what and how you are saying it. This will help you avoid embarrassing situations.
  9. Treat everyone with respect. Treat everyone with respect and don't talk down to others. Treat everyone as an equal.
  10. Keep a positive attitude. Smile even when you're talking on the phone. Your positive attitude will show through in conversation and other people will notice it. People will respond positively if you smile often, and show a positive attitude.
