Do You Communicate Clearly?

August 29, 2014 by  

Most people think that they are good at communicating because they have been doing it since they were born. Actually, most of us are not really very good at it, and here is why.
Communication has many layers of complexity it is not simple linear…message out, message in. Rather there are many interferences and roadblocks thrown up along the pathways of transmission.
In order to gain the ability to communicate with clarity, influence and impact, one must first understand those obstacles and employ strategies to overcome them.

In my book: 5 Secrets to Effective Communication, I offer the reader a full explanation of essential elements necessary for less conflict, frustration, confusion, disappointment, resentment and complaining.

If one wishes to be able to communicate effectively in all apects of their lives they do need to learn about the issues and approaches that allow those win/win and positive outcomes we desire.

One of the main obstacles is the fact that humans, by nature, are creatures of habit. We tend to do the same things over and over even if we do not get what we want because we have set a personal default. In addition, we are usually not big fans of change so altering those habits is rather difficult to achieve without a concerted effort and a real commitment to make that alteration to our behaviour.

Having said all that, those who truly wish to improve their communication skills can certainly do it with a deeper understanding of what caused miscommunication and the strategies necessary to overcome those tendencies.

It is not rocket science, it is actually based on common sense and if we dig down into our subconscious mind we will discover that we actually know a lot of this but have sublimated it so deeply that we have a hard time finding it any more.

I challenge each of you who wish to be better at generating voluntary compliance, creating more win/win and positive outcomes with your colleagues, friends and family and hope to experience fewer frustrating and disappointing conversations, to commit to learning more about the concepts necessary to make those improvements.

I promise that if you make that commitment you will become more efficient, productive, creative and happy in all that you do! In addition you will be able to communicate with clarity, influence and impact!
