Practical tips for effective communication – effective communication is the key to making sure that our relationship with friends and navigation through life keeps moving forward.

Read full content below:

  • Look straight in the eye: When talking or communicating with someone, it makes sense to look them in the eye rather than anywhere else because this shows that you are interested in what they have to say and this exudes confidence. Imagine talking with someone and instead of maintaining eye contact, you look all over the place, from the crown of their head to the sole of their foot; this will make them super uncomfortable.
  • Listen more than you talk: Communication is not just talking but also listening. This is because when you listen attentively to what the other person is saying, you understand them better and you have a higher chance of relating to their story and responding much better.
  • Be empathic: Being empathic means that you have and show the ability to share and understand the feelings of others. People do not want a robotic, zero emotion person to share their stories with. They want someone that can at least understand their emotions and connect with them emotionally.
  • Don’t interrupt: It is a bad communication habit to interrupt someone when they are in the middle of their talks; this is rude behavior. Even when you have something to say, wait till they have made their point and then you can now say whatever it is that you want to say.
  • Be interested or at least appear interested: People want to communicate with you more when you appear interested. Even when you are bored with what they are saying, you can appear interested and then veer the conversation to an end politely. Don’t do rude things such as yawning constantly while they speak or scratching your head and rolling your eyes.
  • Think before you speak:” Thinking people you speak makes you a wise person. When you open your mouth to talk without thinking, people will know it and when you think things through before saying it, people will also know it because your communication will be different and people will notice that you understand what you are saying.
  • Include non verbal communication: You can include non verbal communication such as nodding your head showing that you are interested and that you understand what they are saying. You can also widen your eyes in surprise when what they are saying warrants surprise.
  • Smile or laugh when necessary: This makes them feel relaxed and it shows that you relate to what they are saying. Laugh when they make a joke no matter how dry the joke. This is why it is important to develop a good sense of humor.
  • Be polite: People love a polite person. Be polite in your speech and avoid things that are rude such as shuffling from foot to foot and glancing at the door from time to time; this is an indication that the person is boring and that you would rather leave than listen for a minute more to their story.
  • Don’t deviate: When there is a topic tabled to be discussed, avoid deviating from the original topic. For instance, if you are set to discuss a business deal, make sure that you do not deviate until the aim is achieved. After you have come to an agreement, then you are permitted to deviate. Keep it formal when it is formal.
