For an engaging conversation, you must have a thirst for knowledge. Be it new marketing skills or a new book. If you want to have a conversation on that topic, then you have to be curious about that.

HONEST FEEDBACK

SELF-CONFIDENCE

Sometimes, we face an interview and become nervous. Then we cannot properly communicate with the interviewer. As a result, they think you are unfit for the job. This is a very common scenario of experiencing less confident while communicating. Confidence allows us to communicate better. In that case, boost your confidence level by yourself. A nervous conversation does not make any impression. Our body language portrays our mental state. In anxiety, we cannot sit quietly. We cross our arms while talking in nervousness. Try to maintain eye contact while talking. It will cover your nervousness.

COMFORTABLE WHILE COMMUNICATING

Comforts come with natural communication. You can feel comfortable only when you will feel flexible in the conversation. Professions like lawyers, debaters, successful business people, motivators, etc. require communication with even strangers. You need to feel comfortable while communicating. You can not afford to expose your doubts and questions to them. That is why you need to make a list of important points on the conversation. You should have some knowledge and research on those points. This will allow you flexibility while talking. You also can cover all the important points in your speech.

i. GOOD COMMAND ON LANGUAGE

This is easy. But it can be tricky. Linguistic communication is an important aspect of humans’ lives. It enables us to express our feelings and opinions. There are about 6500 languages all over the world at this point. So without properly knowing the opposite one’s language, it is hard to communicate well. The technical language can be a good help there. But for a much-needed conversation, both of you have to speak and understand a common language. Also, having a good command over various languages can give you a bright future. Interpreters have exciting job profiles in various government and private organizations.

ii. ENGAGING PRESENTATION

How many of you have fallen asleep in a boring class, at least one, in their entire student lives? Then how can you expect the attention of your team and boss to your boring presentation? Effective communication boosts employee productivity. For that, you, too, need to deliver an engaging speech before your team when the time comes.

Only sharing data, statistics, and playing PPT can be boring. But you can make it fun with a personal, humorous touch. In an engaging communication, both parties earn some profit over others.

2 powerful tips for an Effective Communication.png

1.) COMMUNICATION GOAL

Know your goal before starting any communication. The goal means what you want to achieve through this communication.

Do you want to present a life-changing idea for your company in the next board meeting?

Do you want to pursue your interviewer to grab the job?

Are you trying to be the thought leader of your squad? Or you are just trying to convince an old stubborn yet important client to take the project?

Every communication has a different goal. And presenting that communication also should be different. Understand these differences in goals. Then you can make brilliant communications with your audience.

2.) FRAMING

This point is very crucial for successful communication. Good communication must be concise and clear. While preparing for the communication beforehand, try to stay organized through the outline. Then carefully note down every single important detail to mention in the communication. Like, if you are pitching your client to get some extra off in the deal, there is no point gushing around the tree. Instead, plan to put forth your demand in an organized way. Be clear about your requirements. It will be easy for your client to decide whether to accept it.

Effective Communication Tips.png

A. THINK BEFORE SPEAK

The importance of thinking in communication is undeniable. That is why people often forget this point. They jump into communication without thinking much. They become clueless about what to say and how to say after a point of time. As a result, communication remains unfinished. Also, it does not bring any fruitful results to the commuters.

Thinking means information processing, critically analyses the problem, and finding its solution. It is the primary factor in communication. Your ability to think shows your leadership qualities. If you are a boss or a senior employee, then you probably have already that skill. They earn it with patience and a long journey of yours over the years.

B. LISTEN TO OTHERS

Listening is the soul of good communication. You can not engage in effective communication by not listening to what others want to say. Listening to your audience will prevent you from jumping into assumptions. Why do you want to assume that they will reject your presentation or CV? Listen to them. And let them decide. You just put your efforts into your work.
