3 Keys to Effective Communication
How should you communicate so that you are heard acknowledged and your intentions are moved forward?
Here are the 3 keys to communicate effectively:
Speak their ‘words’. As much as possible, know the person you are communicating with beforehand. What and how they use words, phrases and even jargons. Then mix them in as your present your ideas.
Make sure you’re understood. Speak in short sentences and direct to your point. Don’t repeat yourself unless you’re emphasizing a key idea. And at least wait for a few moment to see if they had indeed taken what you have said, then go on.
Ask them questions. Engage with their responses to make sure they’ve understood your idea and don’t forget to listen attentively to what they have to say. Ask questions in case you missed some points that they want to address.
