“Ways To Improve Communication Skill”
Why do we fail to maintain a relationship? It is simple; it happens when our communication is not strong and developed at all. No matter how much you hate it, but if your communication skill is not strong enough then there’s a lot you’ve to go through i.e. in personal and professional life equally. Especially, in professional life, communication should be tight, otherwise there’s a possibility to miss a lot of opportunities easily.
Good Communication is not a pink work.
It requires right ways that roads to benefits. Especially, in a workplace, you need to have the ability to communicate with higher and lower officials effectively.
Here are 7 things you need to understand and improve to build a good communicator in you.
- Professional talk matters
The way you talk to people reveal a lot more about your personality. Nowadays, there is a trend to use slangs while communicating. But hello, there are some workplaces where slangs are not considered as cool as you think. You can’t talk to your boss in such a way i.e. Hey boss, wassup or I’ll brb…Such things are cool when your boss is cool with it but other than that it is a big NO.
- Listening capability
No matter what, you need to learn to listen what the opposite person has to say. Whenever your colleague or say boss comes up to you and start talking, just don’t act smart and show off, but listen to what he/she has to say. People will respect and talk to you, if you listen and then react.
- Body language
Your body language is being noticed by the people around you. The way you talk with them and the way you build eye contacts, everything is observed by the people. And trust me; that’s how they judge you. Even when you’re not talking, people around you are observing, so be smart.
- Positive attitude always win
Even though you’re disturbed at your personal level, don’t bring it up at a workplace. You need to have a positive outlook on everything, so that people will think positively about you. Try to avoid straight face because it looks good only in pictures but not in a workplace. So, keep smiling.
- Act mature
Acting mature is a plus point. Maturity is not just age but while working with people, make sure to keep yourself away from all the bitching, gossiping as much as you can.
- Tone Of Voice
Try to be polite and maintain your tone of voice. In a workplace, there will be situations where you’ll have to debate or discuss a project with your colleagues but don’t cross limits. Do not try to be over-smart and do not drag the person down to show that you’re much smarter than him. Plus, do not be violent.
- Appreciate and Praise
When a person is making an effort to help you, thank him/her for their time. Be respectful to each and every individual in your workplace. Doesn’t matter if the person is in a lower position, a help means a lot so appreciate and praise when needed.
