Effective communication is quintessential in every sphere of life – be it business, relationships, career, education, et al. Although everyone understands that effective communication is crucial, most people feel their communication skills are average or sub-standard.
“The better you can communicate, the more personal success you will achieve,” believes self-proclaimed @SalesGod aka Ron Earley. According to the top 0.1% realtor, Dylan Suitor, “Effective communication is at the heart of building effective teams.” Ron and Dylan share three ways to take your communication one level up, one conversation at a time.
1. Intent & Intonation
As per Ron Earley, the first thing you must clearly know is the purpose or intent of what you want to communicate. Setting your intention straight will help you stay focused on the end goal of the conversation. The next step is to put the message across in a clear and understandable tone. “Your tone gives more clues about your mindset and attitude than your words,” reveals Dylan Suitor.
2. Listen & Learn
Active listening is crucial for effective communication. When you listen, you circumvent miscommunication as well as misinterpretation. “Remember, communication is a two-way street, and you must be fully tuned in to learn and comprehend what the other person has to say,” elaborates Ron. Dylan adds, “When active listening is part of your everyday communication, you open significant opportunities to build great rapport with others.”
3. Conscious Communication
In a recent Instagram post, Ron states, “People will challenge your morals and beliefs, don’t let their negativity affect your energy and the way that you think and speak.” It’s essential to keep your thoughts and choice of words clean and conscious even when you’re dealing with a halfwit buffoon. Dylan shares that “conscious communicators practice brevity, speak calmly, and allow others to process the exchange of information for better understanding.”
Though it takes time to pick any new skills, it’s easier than you think to refine your communication skills and become better speakers, communicators, and leaders.
