I hope you have a great week.
This week I’d like to talk about effective communication and how important it is to learn to be successful at it. In simple terms, communication means expressing a thought or feeling so that it is clearly understood by the party receiving it. Now as easy as it sounds, this can be very difficult to do. The difficulty comes when you are not clear on the message you want to convey and you then fear it will not be understood. As a result, we hold on to things that we shouldn’t and this keeps us weighted down and feeling isolated. These feelings create negativity within us and make it very difficult for us to grow.
We all have various ways of communicating - verbally, through body language and sometimes even silence. What is important for each of us to know is what we are trying to express, who we are communicating with and to be aware of what form of communication they receive best. The goal is to be heard, understood and to be able to do the same for others.
I am attaching a link on “How to Communicate Effectively”. Please take some time to read through the six methods of effective communication. These steps will help you understand the importance of creating an atmosphere designed for effective communication, as well as how to focus on what you are going to communicate. These steps will also give you some guidance on how to receive communication.
Please write and tell me about an experience you’ve had expressing yourself to someone, and let me know what you think of the article I’ve included. I can’t wait to hear from you, and remember……
Always do you,
